The Faculty of Arts & Sciences invites you to attend “Greening The Media”, a lecture delivered by Professor Toby Miller. Professor Toby Miller is a British-Australian-US interdisciplinary social scientist. He is the author and editor of over 30 books, has published essays in more than 100 journals and edited collections, and is a frequent guest commentator on television and radio programmes.

You may not look at your cell phone, TV, or computer the same way after rethinking the media from a green point of view. That perspective can reveal secrets lurking within electronic devices. Marshalling economic, environmental, and historical facts, Toby Miller will examine the environmental, safety, and health record of these technologies to show how making, consuming, and discarding such gadgets is rife with toxic ingredients, poisonous working conditions, and hazardous waste. But all is not lost: we can think creatively about ways to solve these problems as green workers, consumers, and citizens.
