Bethany Wiggin is the founding director of the Penn Program in the Environmental Humanities. PPEH was created in 2014 by Wiggin and Leah Davidson, W'16, as a fresh and unique forum for work on environmental issues. With support from the Penn Arts and Sciences' Dean's Office, the Green Campus Partnership, and the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy, the program offers competitive year-long research fellowships to graduate and undergraduate students across all Penn's schools and is hosting a series of five major public events this year outlining the role of the environmental humanities.

Penn Arts and Sciences' long-running Knowledge by the Slice series offers educational talks led by insightful faculty experts. Did we mention there's pizza? So sit back, relax, and enjoy the discussion. And have a slice on us.
