Sustainable Futures Speaker Series
As part of the Sustainable Futures Speaker Series, Dr. M Jackson will present "The Secret Lives of Icelandic Glaciers." Geographer, adventurer, environmental educator, and 2017 National Geographic Society Emerging Explorer M Jackson studies and writes about glaciers and climate change. She earned a doctorate from the University of Oregon in geography and glaciology, where she examined how climate change transformed people and ice communities in Iceland. She is currently working on In Tangible Ice, a multi-year project examining the socio-physical dimensions of glacier retreat in near-glacier communities within all eight circumpolar nations. The Sustainable Futures Speaker Series is presented by Humboldt State University’s Environment & Community Graduate Program, the Schatz Energy Research Center, and the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences. The presentation will take place in Founders Hall 118 on the Humboldt State University campus.
