A lecture by Dr. Nancy Langston
What can we learn from environmental recoveries over the past century, as we face new interconnected challenges from climate change, synthetic chemicals, and forest change? In her new book about Lake Superior--the world’s largest and fastest warming lake--Langston describes significant conservation success stories for fish, forests, and water quality, with significant consequences for Native American and working-class communities.
Dr. Nancy Langston is Distinguished Professor of Environmental History at Michigan Technological University and is currently the Inaugural Mellon Visiting Scholar in the Center for Environmental Futures at the University of Oregon.
