2011 Rachel Carson Lecture by Emilio Moran
The 2011 Rachel Carson Lecture, "Rethinking Human-Environment Interactions" was delivered by Emilio Moran on Dec. 8, 2011 in the Lincoln Room of the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center on the Michigan State University campus.
As an anthropologist, Moran’s research focuses on how people and the environment interact in complex and sometimes unanticipated ways. His more than 30 years of scholarly study of that interaction have put him at the forefront of a new interdisciplinary field: environmental anthropology. Moran is one of only a few anthropologists worldwide to study the importance of the human dimensions of global environmental change. He also is recognized as one of the first social scientists to integrate geographic information systems into anthropological research. Moran is the Rudy Professor of Anthropology and Distinguished Professor and serves as director of the Anthropological Center for Training and Research on Global Environmental Change at Indiana University.
