at the 2011 Graduation Ceremony
"The MRLS degree provided me more than an introduction to the major laws and bodies governing our environment and natural resources—both national and international. It widened my understanding of the often deeply conflicting philosophies, interests and regimes that compete to inform those policies. Those debates are what interest me most, both as a student and a teacher.
I have accepted a position at the University of Michigan as a LEO Lecturer III, a joint appointment to the Department of English and the Program in the Environment (PitE). (I will also provide supervision for the PitE internship program.) PitE, now in its tenth year, defines its “mission to develop environmentally informed citizens and leaders through an undergraduate program that balances rigorous environmental studies in many disciplines, hones practical problem-solving skills, and fosters intellectual risk taking.” (See http://www.lsa.umich.edu/pite for more information.) Courses I will be teaching include Environmental Law and Literature, Environmental Justice, Race and Ethnicity, Poetry and Politics of Water, Ecocriticism, and Women Write the Environment."
Congratulations to Stacy!
We wish her all the best in her next chapter!
