The Secret Lives of Glaciers

Geographer and glaciologist M Jackson will discuss her book, The Secret Lives of Glaciers, at a webinar on October 7 at 7 p.m. In The Secret Lives of Glaciers, Jackson explores the profound impacts of glacier change on the human and physical geography of Iceland. Currently an Arctic Expert for the National Geographic Society, Jackson has worked for more than a decade in the Arctic chronicling climate change and communities. Her memoir While Glaciers Slept: Being Human in a Time of Climate Change weaves together the parallel stories of what happens when the climates of a family and a planet change. Jackson’s appearance is presented by the Lowell Humanities Series and co-sponsored by the Earth & Environmental Sciences Department and the Environmental Studies Program. Pre-registration is required.
