Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, a space for experimental art, music, and film located in the heart of downtown Buffalo at Delaware and Tupper, is the perfect setting for the eighth year of the Humanities Institute's Scholars@Hallwalls lecture series. These monthly presentations feature one fellow's research in an engaging lecture with lively follow-up conversation. This year's lineup highlights the interdisciplinary range of humanities research at UB.

Talks are on Friday afternoons at 4 pm and are free and open to the public. Complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres are served. Please join us for any or all of the Scholars@Hallwalls talks!

"Partly Green: The Past and Future of Sustainable Business"

Adam Rome, History

Can capitalism become green without fundamental changes in the rules of the marketplace? The last 30 years has been a revealing test of the limits of corporate sustainability initiatives. In the United States, no major environmental legislation has passed since 1990, yet many businesses have worked hard to become greener. How successful have their efforts been? What has driven change, and what has stood in the way? The answers to those questions offer important insight into what we still need to do to build a sustainable economy.
