As we begin the semester, we're highlighting Bryn Mawr's newest faculty members. The College supports faculty excellence in both research and teaching.
The Johanna Alderfer Harris and William H. Harris M.D. Professor of Environmental Studies Sara Grossman
She ask questions like: "What does environmental data look like historically?" "What does it feel like?" "How has it been preserved or forgotten?" That’s where community building practices come into the picture––it's communities who have the power and capacity to help environmental data survive or disappear. This is a powerful truth, but also one that requires thoughtfulness and care across interlinked human communities.
Bryn Mawr's Environmental Studies Department combines the strengths of our two liberal arts campuses to create an interdisciplinary program that teaches students to synthesize diverse disciplinary knowledge and approaches, and to communicate effectively across disciplinary boundaries as they engage with environmental issues. In addressing these issues, ENVS students will apply critical thinking and analytical skills within a holistic, systems framework that includes social justice as an essential component.
