Yale PhD candidates Sarah Pickman (HSHM) and Paul Burow (F&ES / Anthropology) workshop their dissertation prospectuses. Sarah Pickman’s rsearch examines the movement of material objects in and out of various cultural and environmental contexts, particularly the Arctic and Antarctica, with a focus on how “extreme environments” are constructed, imagined, and experienced. Paul Burow’s research examines the cultural and environmental politics of forests and wildlife in North America’s Great Basin.
Pickman and Burow each will present their planned projects for discussion.
