Location: Kendade Hall, Room 305 Mount Holyoke College

After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill anthropologist Valerie Olson went into the field to find out how deepwater experts understand the mysterious and imperiled ocean subsurface. Mostly unseen and inaccessible, this extreme zone is becoming deeply linked to national futures. Olson's work explores how the spill catastrophe calls attention to new extensions of environmental politics.

Valerie Olson, PhD, is a research associate at Rice University
