Lecture on Glaciers & Climate Policy

Feb 24 @ 4:00 pm-6:00 pm

The Urban Planning Lecture Series will feature author Mark Carey in a lecture titled, “Toward Glacier and Iceberg Justice — We Need New Stories of Ice.”

This presentation builds on work in the Andes and focuses on Greenland glaciers and icebergs in the north Atlantic Ocean to expose some of the embedded contradictions in the way we study, narrate and interact with ice.

Carey is professor of history and environmental studies in the Clark Honors College and director of the environmental studies program at the University of Oregon. He also runs the Glacier Lab for the Study of Ice and Society. His award-winning writing includes “In the Shadow of Melting Glaciers: Climate Change and Andean Society,” a book published in 2010.
