The View from Antarctica: O’Reilly Spotlights the Science of Climate Change
On January 17th, Professor Jessica O'Reilly released The Technocratic Antarctic: An Ethnography of Scientific Expertise and Environmental Governance (Cornell UP).
Spanning over a decade of research, the book is “an ethnographic account of the scientists and policymakers who work on Antarctica,” and draws upon Professor O’Reilly’s long-standing anthropological relationship with the scientists of Antarctica.
If this topic sparks your interest, each one of Professor O’Reilly’s classes “have a dose of Antarctica,” she says. In Fall 2017, she will be teaching an introductory course titled “Climate Change and International Studies” (INTL-I105), as well as an advanced seminar titled “Negotiating Climate” (INTL-I420/I502).
The book is available for pre-order now from Cornell UP, as well as other major booksellers.
