Christina Gerhardt, the Barron Visiting Professor in the Environmental Humanities in the High Meadows Environmental Institute and visiting associate professor of HMEI and the German Department, will present “Atlas of Islands in a Rising Ocean” for our second talk in the Fall 2021 HMEI Faculty Seminar Series.

Gerhardt will discuss her book project, “Atlas of Islands in a Rising Ocean,” in which she combines geography and cartography, literary studies and creative non-fiction, and environmental studies and environmental humanities to examine the impacts of climate change on low-lying islands and the solutions being put forward — often by Indigenous islanders — to address them.

Jerry Zee, assistant professor of Anthropology and the High Meadows Environmental Institute, will lead a discussion and Q&A after the main presentation.

Register to attend this talk in person (PUID holders only) or via Zoom livestream.

In-person attendance is currently available for registered Princeton University ID holders only and face coverings are required. In-person attendance is contingent on University guidelines for indoor events — updates will be posted as necessary. The livestream is open to the public and the University community.
