Creative Nonfiction and Climate Change - Nancy Langston, Climate Ghosts: Migratory Species in the Anthropocene


About This Event

Nancy Langston is Distinguished Professor of Environmental History at Michigan Technological University.

Climate Ghosts deals with the important issue of climate change and human impact on three species: woodland caribou, common loons, and lake sturgeon. These species were once abundant in the Great Lakes region, but habitat change, toxics, and over-hunting decimated their populations by the early 20th century. How have the relationships between humans and these other species been influenced by climate change? Climate Ghosts employs perspectives from the environmental humanities and the tools of science to better understand our relationship with these threatened species in an era of rapid warming.
