Alexandra Brewis, Arizona State University
“Biocultural Perspectives on Coping with Water Insecurity (and other Extreme Climate Challenges)”

Alex Brewis (Slade) has a long career of collaborative, community-based field research, addressing the biocultural dimensions of complex environmental and health issues. For the last decade she has collaborated on the Global Ethnohydrology Study, a major effort to understand how people across the global north and global south recognize and respond to water insecurity and other climate challenges. At ASU, Alex teaches global health and anthropology and co-directs the Global Impact Collaboratory. She founded ASU’s Center for Global Health in 2006 and served as Director of the School of Human Evolution and Social Change from 2010-17 and Associate Vice President for Social Sciences from 2014-17. She is an AAAS fellow and current President of the Human Biology Association. Alex received a PhD in anthropology from University of Arizona (1992) and was an Andrew W Mellon Foundation postdoctoral fellow in demography at Brown University.

This event is part of the Duck Family Colloquium series. The Center for Environmental Politics organizes a monthly colloquium series on environmental politics, policy, and governance. This series is made possible by the generous support of Gary and Susan Duck, UW alumni and long-standing benefactors of the department. Susan passed away in December 2015 after a prolonged illness. We miss her a lot.
