This is a Virtual Event.

Chanda Prescod-Weinstein is an assistant professor of physics and a core faculty member for women’s studies at the University of New Hampshire. She will participate in a Q&A on topics covered in her book, The Disordered Cosmos: A Journey into Dark Matter, Spacetime, and Dreams Deferred, which urges recognition of how science is rife with racism, sexism, and other dehumanizing systems and lays out a bold new approach to science and society.

Moderated by Trevor Bechtel, student engagement and strategic projects manager at Poverty Solutions.

In partnership with U-M’s Physics Department and Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering Department.

Real-World Perspectives on Poverty Solutions introduces key issues regarding the causes and consequences of poverty through a virtual lecture series featuring experts in policy and practice from across the nation, with the goal of encouraging the formation of a broad community of learners to engage in these issues together.

Speakers are national and global experts drawn from university, business, and community contexts who explore interdisciplinary real-world poverty solutions from a wide variety of perspectives. The virtual talks, which are free and open to the public, will be livestreamed on YouTube with the opportunity for Q&A. U-M students can participate in the series as a one-credit course.
