The Urban Studies Program (URST) at Trinity College announces a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level focused on Sustainable Urban Development, with a comparative global perspective. We particularly encourage applications from candidates with some range of the following preferred qualifications and expertise: sustainable urban development and environmental policy, international comparative urban environmental policy, urban environmental health and policy, sustainable urban design, sustainable urban transportation and infrastructure, global climate change’s impacts in urban development, urban sustainability and environmental justice, or intersections between social and environmental movements and urban sustainability dynamics. Interests in urban Geographic Information Systems (GIS), spatial statistics and data visualization applications to sustainable urban development will be considered, but are not required. The geographical regions of specialization are open, although primary research in regions other than North America is preferred; an international and comparative perspective on sustainable urban development and environmental policy is imperative.

URBAN Education Node: Human Rights Webinar
Human Rights in Education Coalition-Building
The URBAN Ed Node has been working to launch coalition-building with human rights organizations and educators. We are hosting a Human Rights Webinar, to be held May 24, from 12pm-1:15pm Mountain Standard Time. We have 50 slots available for the webinar, so if you would like to attend, you will need to reserve your spot by going to the link below.
Attached is a flyer that explains how to access the webinar and who the presenters are, or see below.
We ask that you reserve your spot in the next couple of days, and then, after Monday, May 15, we welcome you to distribute it to your networks.
We also will distribute this to a few other human rights networks at that time.
We look forward to learning with human rights scholars how we as educators can support their organizing efforts, and we look forward to learning how schools are taking up productive human rights frameworks and practices.
