CLLAS Advisory Board Member Mark Carey Honored for His Recent Book



Mark Carey, assistant professor of history in the UO Robert D. Clark Honors College and a member of the CLLAS advisory board, is the recipient of the 2011 Elinor Melville Prize for Latin American Environmental History, awarded by the Conference on Latin American History, for his book In the Shadow of Melting Glaciers: Climate Change and Andean Society (Oxford University Press, 2010).

Carey’s research shows that severe environmental, economic, and social impacts have come from climate change in  Peru’s Cordillera Blanca mountain range. He writes of the tragic history of these impacts for the people of this region and shows how different groups have responded to impending changes.
