The Science of Living Worlds

In this Carl Sagan Lecture, we will explore key aspects of this new science and its application. Looking to the past, we will consider new perspectives on the preciousness of our “pale blue dot” arising from recent discoveries about the evolution of Earth’s aerobic biosphere. Looking to the future, we will examine new insights from the learning sciences, especially about science education, and new capabilities arising from learning engineering, that show how we might avoid a future as a “demon haunted world”.

DEI Committee Program 

The AGU Biogeosciences Section’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is holding a series of virtual “office hours” to prepare potential nominators and nominees for AGU honors (medals, awards, prizes, fellowship, and lectures) with the knowledge, skills, and feedback they need to put together an outstanding packet. In this session, 2021 Hilker Early Career Award winner Jennifer Glass will discuss tips for crafting your two-page bibliography/publication list. Most of the hour will be dedicated to Q&A with the audience, including feedback on any prepared materials participants are willing to share.

The office hour will be October 28, 2022 from 2–3 pm Eastern Time (11 am–12 pm Pacific). Please sign up at this link, or email Sam Rabin (sam.rabin@rutgers.edu) with any questions.
