Plastic Entanglements Student Research Presentations

Students from several classes, including UO’s Political Science department's "Intergenerational Justice" course will share work related to some of the core themes raised by the Plastic Entanglements exhibition. Presentations may address the historical, sociological, legal, aesthetic, literary, scientific or philosophic dimensions of plastic, the material’s limitless potential benefits, and the threat plastic poses as a serious, potentially perpetual environmental curse.

Panel Discussion: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Plastics, Pollution, and Consumption

A panel of faculty and experts in different fields will share their perspectives in response to the themes of Plastic Entanglements and discuss the long-term effects of the plastics we consume in our own community. Moderated by Babe O'Sullivan, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and Materials Management Program.
