This project is designed to expose PSU students, faculty, staff, and community members to interdisciplinary research on one of the most pressing 21st century challenges: climate change. Dr. Susan Crate is an anthropologist with a long career of conducting interdisciplinary and applied research. Her work is showcased in the film The Anthropologist, which documents her efforts to understand how marginalized communities adapt to changing environmental conditions. This project will bring Dr. Crate to campus for a two-day visit. During her visit, we will hold a public film screening followed by a Q+A session. We will also arrange to have Dr. Crate visit several undergraduate classes to discuss her work and what models it can provide to PSU in a more intimate “workshop” setting.
