biography

Joshua Howe is assistant professor of history and environmental studies at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. In his new book, Behind the Curve: Science and the Politics of Global Warming , he asks why it is our global society, despite more than half a century of sustained scientific study, has failed to affect meaningful policies to combat climate change. Dr. Howe received his Ph.D. in history from Stanford University in 2010, and before his appointment at Reed he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the history of science at Montana State University.

Subhankar Banerjee is an environmental humanities scholar and activist. Over the past thirteen years he has worked tirelessly for the conservation of ecoculturally significant areas of the Arctic, and to raise awareness about indigenous human rights and climate change. He has also been focusing on climate change impacts in the desert southwest. He founded ClimateStoryTellers.org, and is editor of the anthology Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point (Seven Stories Press). He was recently Director's Visitor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, Distinguished Visiting Professor at Fordham University in New York, received Distinguished Alumnus Award from the New Mexico State University, and Cultural Freedom Award from Lannan Foundation.
