Earth & Environment Lecturer James Baldwin will be giving a talk this evening at 7 pm in room 206 of the Photonics Center as part of BU’s Rhett Talks.

The theme of tonight’s Rhett Talk will be “Social Justice.” Baldwin’s talk will focus specifically on the implications of demographic and environmental change for humanity in the coming decades.

In addition to Baldwin’s lecture, two other faculty members will also give brief lectures on past and present issues related to social justice.

Each talk will last roughly 15 minutes and be followed by a 5 minute Q&A session.

BU Rhett Talks are modeled after the popular TED talks and are designed to allow students to engage with faculty on a variety of interesting, intellectual topics.
