New York, NY 10012
While the era of human impact—the Anthropocene—advances as an interdisciplinary academic topic, a growing discourse of dismissal outside academia challenges scientific scholarly work. Drawing from her research in the fields of economic vulnerability and climate change, Robin Leichenko, professor and chair of Geography at Rutgers University and co-Director of the Rutgers Climate Institute, will explore how the scholarly framing of the Anthropocene presents a critical opportunity for new conversations, research, and enhanced engagement with real-world concerns.
