View event details.

Because most of humanity uses an Indigenous or local knowledge system to understand the world, anthropology has a specific role to play as a knowledge broker for these communities. Susan Crate is an environmental and cognitive anthropologist who will share how she conducts this work and what is needed to slow down and curtail climate change for the preservation of the world’s indigenous people. 

Crate is a professor of anthropology in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at George Mason University. She has worked with indigenous communities in Siberia since 1988.
