Kathleen Galvin, a co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, will speak April 14 at 5:30 p.m. in the Chapel. Open free to the public, her keynote address, “Global Environmental Change: Research and Engagement for Resilience,” will begin the annual conference of the Society for Economic Anthropology.
An anthropology professor at Colorado State University, Galvin is a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which shared the Nobel Peace Prize with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore in 2007. She also is a member of the National Academy of Science/National Research Council’s Human Dimensions of Global Change group. Much of her research explores biocultural and human-ecological aspects of African pastoralism including land use, conservation, climate variability and decision-making under uncertainty.
