On the Edge: Water, Immigration, and
Politics in the Southwest
- W.M. Keck Professor of Environmental Analysis, Pomona College, CA
In this talk, Miller will explore the interconnected issues of water, immigration, and politics in the nation’s fastest-growing region. As he does in the book by the same title, Miller will touch on the powerful concept of place to order our experience in this arid region and set that experience within some of the most fraught expressions of life—human and biotic—in this land of little rain (and much angst).
Char Millier is the author of On the Edge: Water, Immigration, and Politics in the Southwest, co-author of Death Valley National Park: A History, and penned the forthcoming America’s National Forests. A Senior Fellow at the Pinchot Institute for Conservation and a Fellow of the Forest History Society, Miller’s award-winning blog, Golden Green, probes environmental issues of impacting California and the West.
Lunch will be provided.
