Amazon and Beyond Over Winter Break

rioamazon.jpgI'm delighted to share that I've been hired again by Semester at Sea, this time as a lecturer on their winter Enrichment Voyage up the Amazon. I will be joining civil rights leader Julian Bond and a wonderful collection of scholars from around the world. This will be the fourth time in the last five years that my family and I will have jumped on the MV Explorer to be part of this fantastic program. Aboard ship I will be giving lectures on sustainable development in the Amazon basin and the Caribbean islands. In the field I will be leading trips and continuing my research on Ecological Handprints (see entry below). Here are links to the Amazon Enrichment Voyage as well as the Academic Voyages offered by Semester at Sea. I'll be blogging again at this site once we set sail in December. Meanwhile, here's a link to a recent article from the SSU NewsCenter highlighting my work with Semester at Sea entitled "The Inner Voyage is Often the Most Challenging."
