Featured FIGs: Finding Your Voice, Human Genome, Just Futures

These three featured FIGS are part of the broader FIG offerings for fall of 2017. To see the full list please visit the Finding the FIG For You page.

Finding Your Voice will explore active learning strategies that allow you to express your unique voice as a reader, writer, and speaker.

The ideas covered in this FIG help to bridge the gap between research going on in the science world and the events that occur in our daily lives, with a focus on the explosion of research in genomics since the completion of the Human Genome Project.

Note: Chemistry FIGs will not be available to sign up for online on May 15. You will be able to sign up for a chemistry FIG at your IntroDUCKtion session.

How do we imagine the future? What kinds of landscapes, which bodies, whose voices, what types of powers and privileges are included? How do we plan to start living it now? This FIG will explore different socio-ecological visions of the future that are now emerging from our uneven planetary conditions. We’ll focus especially on how legacies of inequity, exclusion, and degradation are making possible alternate ways of understanding the world and humanity, and inspiring diverse movements for social and environmental justice – conceiving and building more just futures.
