Stephanie LeMenager - Climate and Society

December 7, 2021
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Event Description

The Climate School at Columbia University will launch officially in fall 2021; this newest School at Columbia promises to form a hub of interdisciplinary research. Complex phenomena such as the climate crisis are so multidimensional that they need more than just a scientific or technological lens; instead the combined expertise of researchers in social and human behavior, culture, politics and policy, economics, communication, and other areas must be brought to bear. This series will showcase the work of leading scholars and Columbia researchers on climate, environment, sustainability and their social and cultural dimensions.

Event Speakers

  • Stephanie LeMenager, Barbara and Carlisle Moore Distinguished Professor in English and American Literature at the University of Oregon
  • Response by Jennifer Wenzel, Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature and of Middle Eastern, South Asian and African Studies at Columbia University
  • Chaired by Mingfang Ting, Lamont Research Professor at Columbia University
