Event description

Description

Please join us for the Institute for Practical Ethic's keynote address, featuring Emma Marris, an environmental journalist and author, who will speak on "The Future of Nature: Conservation in the Anthropocene."

Event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided. Space is limited -- please RSVP!

***

Emma Marris is an environmental writer and reporter who explores conservation, ecology, energy, agriculture, food, language, books, and film. Her stories have appeared in National Geographic, Slate, The New York Times, and, above all, Nature, where she worked as a staffer for several years.

Marris has a degree in science writing from the Johns Hopkins University. In 2011, she published her first book, "Rambunctious Garden: Saving Nature in a Post-Wild World." The book highlights alternative conservation strategies that do not focus on holding or returning land to a historical baseline.

UC San Diego Division of Arts and Humanities addresses important issues surrounding emerging progress in medical discoveries, scientific research, and technological innovations through one of its signature initiatives, the Institute for Practical Ethics. Formed as an interdisciplinary research unit within UC San Diego, it is dedicated to the goal of creating socially responsible science and policy.
