Climate Change and Globalization in Coastal Regions: Opportunities and Challenges for Building Resilience

Dr. Robin Leichenko's research intersects the fields of economic geography and human dimensions of global environmental change. Her work examines how and why processes of global economic and environmental change differentially affect cities, regions and sectors, and the implications of these processes for questions of vulnerability, equity, resilience and sustainability.  Her book, Environmental Change and Globalization: Double Exposures (with Karen O'Brien, Oxford University Press, 2008) was awarded the 2009 Meridian Book Award for Outstanding Scholarly Work in Geography from the Association of American Geographers. Leichenko's talk will examine interactions between climate change and globalization in coastal regions of the United States.

Speaker: Dr. Robin Leichenko, Professor and Chair, Department of Geography, Rutgers University
