Ozzie Zehner, Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, and author of Green Illusions: The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Environmentalism (University of Nebraska Press, 2012) will deliver the Albert Sobey Lecture on Leadership and Ethics on August 2, 2012 from 12:15-1:15 in AB 2-225 (the "Crib-a-Thon"). .
Zehner is a graduate of Kettering University (BS-Engineering) and a former Sobey Scholar. He also attended the University of Amsterdam (MS/Drs-Science and Technology Studies). He has written for a variety of academic publications and magazines including The Christian Science Monitor, The American Scholar, The Humanist, The Futurist, and Women’s Studies Quarterly on the subjects of international human rights and environmental justice.
Zehner’s new book is a critique of alternative energy from an environmental perspective, arguing that concerned citizens should instead focus on walkable communities, improved consumption, governance, and most notably, women’s rights.
Lunch will be provided. All members of the Kettering community are welcome.
