Thu, Apr 2nd
11:00 am - 12:00 pm Ask a Geologist: Human Evolution [Webinar]

Speakers

  • Rhonda Quinn

    Dr. Rhonda Quinn is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Seton Hall University. Rhonda approaches anthropological questions with (bio)geochemical methodologies. Beginning at the undergraduate level and now as an associate professor, she integrates stable isotopic and elemental data with environmental and cultural information of modern and fossil humans to understand human behavioral and morphological adaptation to ecosystems spanning millions of years to more recent times. At Seton Hall University, a primarily undergraduate institution, she directs an anthropological biogeochemical laboratory that functions as a teaching and research facility utilizing materials from forensic, archaeological, and paleoanthropological contexts.

Tue, Apr 14th
11:00 am - 12:00 pm Ask a Geologist: Plate Tectonics [Webinar]

Speakers

  • Chris Rowan

    Christian Rowan is a graduate student in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences. He is a broadly trained geoscientist interested in the interactions between climate, tectonics, and, erosional processes in the formation of Earth’s landforms. He has related interests in the interaction between Earth systems and terrestrial ecosystem evolution. As such, Chris’ research draws upon a wide analytical and theoretical toolkit, ranging from geomorphology and sedimentology, to field mapping and seismology. Specifically, he combines high resolution topography, seismic, and sedimentological data to understand the structural and kinematic history of rift basins. Currently, his research focuses on the structural evolution of the Turkana Basin, Kenya. Notably, how pre-existing structures and basin inversion shape the landscape we see today; as this plays a crucial role in the distribution and recovery of hominin and other vertebrate fossils recovered in the basin. More Information about Christian.

The Plague After Death: A Political Ecology of the Underground in Madagascar

Speakers

  • Genese Sodikoff

    Dr. Genese Sodikoff is an environmental and medical anthropologist at Rutgers University, Newark and the Director of Rutgers’ Center for African Studies. Her research has examined the politics of biodiversity conservation, human-animal relations, and extinction events in Madagascar. She is the author of Forest and Labor in Madagascar: From Colonial Concession to Global Biosphere and editor of The Anthropology of Extinction: Essays on Culture and Species Death. In 2015, she was the recipient of a Mellon New Directions Fellowship to pursue training in epidemiology. Her current project in Madagascar investigates the persistence of bubonic plague in the environment and its effects on mortuary policy and people’s relationships to deceased ancestors.
