Perspectives Lecture: An Archaeological Perspective on Humans and Climate Change

02/13/2017 - 7:00pm

How are modern day humans adapting to climate change? To find the answer, archaeologists are studying how human societies have responded to environmental changes in the past. Dr. Isabel Rivera-Collazo focuses on understanding human resilience and adaptation to past environmental change as a lens through which we can view the future. Finding answers involves diverse disciplines, including archeology, anthropology, geomorphology, ecosystem dynamics and climate science. Join us to learn how her work at Scripps Oceanography and in UC San Diego’s Department of Anthropology is changing the way we view climate change and its impacts on society. The lecture is from 7 - 8 p.m. Doors open at 6:30. Prices are $8 for public, $5 for students and educators, and free for Birch Aquarium members. For more information, call 858-534-5771, or visit
