E3B Seminar Series
New York, New York
CRED Co-Director Ben Orlove gave a presentation entitled “Babies, Dogs and Microbes: Organisms that Threaten the Wilderness Continent of Antarctica” as part of the Columbia University Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology‘s E3B Seminar Series.
Ben is looking at three areas of contention under the international system that governs Antarctica in the name of peace, science and conservation. Each of the disputes involves the regulation of a particular kind of organism. As an environmental anthropologist, Ben is trying to bring together several perspectives on these disputes.
