In the week leading up to Earth Day 2013, April 19th-21st, RPI will be presenting the Sensing Environments festival, an array of performances, lectures, films, exhibits
and workshops showcasing the theme of environmental sustainability. A joint initiative of Rensselaer’s Task Force on Interdisciplinary Excellence in Sustainability Studies and the Department of the Arts, the Festival will bring together scientists, engineers, humanities scholars and artists to promote new ways of understanding, experiencing, and promoting environmental sustainability. The festival spotlights renowned experts from Rensselaer’s own faculty as well as leading figures in the arts and sciences internationally.
 
As part of the events scheduled, the Science and Technology Studies Department will be hosting a Sustainability Workshop, a space and time for graduate students from all disciplines to present, discuss, and improve their work in a collegial atmosphere. From published work to works-in-progress, we encourage interested scholars to join us in celebration of the Earth and the academic exploration of sustainability.
