    Event Description:

    Dr. Barrett Ristroph, who holds a JD, as well as a PhD in Urban and Regional Planning, will present a guest lecture with a question and answer session discussing the sustainability of rural communities. Dr. Ristroph has worked extensively with Alaskan Native Villages, and will draw largely from her work with these extremely remote indigenous communities, but will also provide examples of the sustainability of other remote, rural areas, such as Appalachia. The lecture will discuss the difficulties and environmental cost of bringing modern conveniences to rural areas, including diesel fuel energy sources, garbage removal, and recycling. Dr. Ristroph will also discuss the ethical issues impacting the discussion of sustainability in rural communities.
