The Environment Forum with Sara J. Grossman: The Data of Climate Crisis

Monday, Mar 04, 2024, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Sever Hall, Room 113
Harvard Yard
What is left in the wake of nineteenth and twentieth century meteorological science’s deep ties to state power? This book talk, centered around "Immeasurable Weather," engages this question by illuminating how meteorological data science bolstered systems of settler expansion, gendered science, and resource extraction in the United States, as well as how the inheritances of data science have accumulated in today’s world. These inheritances are more than numerical and pose complicated questions for ways of living and longing in a world shaped by extreme weather and our understanding of it through climate change data.
