A Global Environmental History of the First World War featuring Julie Velásquez Runk Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Georgia & Research Associate, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute Associate Professor of History at Rhodes College

Velásquez' research uses interdisciplinary approaches to how people use and manage their landscapes, how that relates to science, conservation, indigenous knowledge, and policy, and how people cope with variability and change. She grounds this work in political ecology, science and technology studies, human geography, environmental humanities, and collaboration. 

Discovery & Inspiration Speaker Series 

Presented in partnership with the Chapel Hill Public Library, these events will be held on Saturdays at 2 p.m. at 100 Library Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27514.
