    Soliciting feedback: Hi everyone. I am the creator of the website “A Climate Change Module for Introduction to Sociology Classes,” described in one of the videos in this session of the Conference. Since I am planning to update/revise/improve the site sometime in the next six months, I would be grateful for any feedback or suggestions you might have.

    Thank you all for such wonderful talks! In particular I appreciated hearing about all the networks and initiatives I’d never heard of before–Ecoversities, Center for Convivial Research and Autonomy, etc. I’m wondering if any of the panelists from the first presentation had any practical tips for, or specific examples of, doing the work you talk about. For example, “unlearning”–what might that look like in a specific gathering? I’m also curious about, for those who work within the neoliberal university, as I do, negotiating student resistance. How do you propose these activities to students who come there for a “standard” education?
