Event description

Description

Gautam N. Yadama, MSSA 1985, PhD 1990, Dean of Boston College School of Social Work, will present a special student colloquium, "Intervening in Complex Systems: The Case for Transdisciplinary Research," on Thursday, March 30, at 5:30 p.m., at Mandel Center Room 108. Includes dinner and 1 PD hour.

A member of the Mandel School Hall of Achievement and recipient of a 2016 Centennial Alumni Award, Dr. Yadama is an internationally respected researcher whose interdisciplinary work has focused on understanding the social and environmental challenges of the rural poor in South Asia and China, and he has conducted extensive community-based research throughout India, China and Nepal.

His research examines the overarching questions of how communities successfully self-govern and collectively provide essential public goods and common-pool resources vital for their livelihoods; how government and non-governmental organizations engage and collaborate with these communities; and how social and ecological interactions influence the sustained implementation of household and community interventions to overcome social dilemmas and improve wellbeing.

He co-authored the book Fires, Fuel, and the Fate of 3 Billion, which examines the complex nexus of issues at play in the developing world's use of crude cookstoves -- factors such as poverty, energy, environment, and gender inequality.

This student colloquium is in conjunction with the Stein Lecture in International Social Welfare, which will be held March 31: http://msass.case.edu/2017-stein-lecture/
