Climate Change Research at Smith College
The world is fast approaching an all-hands-on-deck moment as the climate crisis picks up speed. All change, mitigation, and progress must come from knowledge, insight, and research. Academic institutions provide the scholarly building blocks necessary to create an informed and capable citizenry. The future depends upon our readiness to face the impending challenges before us all. Whether it is discipline-specific research or interdisciplinary connections, Smith faculty continue to produce important contributions toward addressing the crisis at hand.
For this exhibit, Smith ScholarWorks has brought together research that exemplifies these contributions. The collection is a living collection which will add scholarship as it is produced. It includes: faculty research out of, and often across, a multitude of disciplines; collaborations with colleagues in and out of Smith, or with students; as well as individually created work. From raw research to poetic meditations on the Anthropocene— it is an impressive body of work making a positive impact on our community: locally, regionally, and globally.
