“Risk and Uncertainty Road Show” Brownbag, Friday, November 12

The November brownbag will be on Friday, the 12th at 11:30am in OldH 538. This month’s brownbag will feature a presentation from members of the UNL Public Policy Center, including Dr. Sarah Michaels.

Abstract: When scholars in diverse disciplines understand concepts such as risk, uncertainty and critical thresholds differently, generating interdisciplinary solutions to societal problems can be difficult, confusing and frustrating. The seminar series, of which this session is one component, is a critical first step towards eliminating the dissatisfying and unproductive situation. Each session is a voluntary opportunity for scholars to explain in the context of their discipline’s theoretical and empirical approaches: What does risk mean? What does uncertainty mean? What are the critical thresholds of concern? There will be a summary blog for each session. Highlights of all sessions and a discussion of future directions will be featured at a December wrap up session at the Public Policy Center. For more information, contact Jenn Klein at jklein2@nebraska.edu.
