Langston Fellowship Awards

Nancy Langston has been awarded two fellowships for her upcoming sabbatical leave. In the fall, she will be the Mellon Visiting Scholar in Environmental Humanities at the Center for Environmental Futures, University of Oregon. In the spring, she will be the Fulbright  Canada Research Chair in Interdisciplinary Sustainability Solutions at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Canada.  Before heading out to Oregon, she will spend a month in China and Mongolia, where she will give a keynote lecture at Renmin University’s Center for Ecological History, and then do research with colleagues from the Smithsonian on nomadic reindeer herders in Mongolia’s taiga. Her sabbatical research explores the ways northern migratory species and peoples are adapting to climate change in the Anthropocene.
