Guest lecture on environmental risk mitigation
When: Fri April 20, 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Where: Marquez Hall 122
This week we are hosting anthropologist Elizabeth Reddy, who works with Mexican engineers and geophysicists to develop an earthquake early warning system for the West Coast of the United States. In this talk, she will describe what it looks like when Mexican innovations are marginalized and suggest that this marginalization might have real consequences for the international research community and for people at risk. She will close by discussing how insights from this research is guiding her current research on the sociotechnical tools and techniques necessary to facilitate what social scientists have begun to call “environmental data justice.”
