from Around the O, Sept. 19, 2018—Mark Carey never saw it coming, but his 20 years of research in a region of South America strongly affected by glaciers have elevated him into international mountaineering fame.

Carey, a historian in the UO’s Clark Honors College and director of the Environmental Studies Program, received the King Albert Mountain Award during ceremonies Sept. 8 in Pontresina, Switzerland. The honor goes to “persons or institutions that have distinguished themselves in some way in the mountain world.”

Carey was joined at the winner’s podium in the King Albert I Memorial Foundation’s 13th award ceremony by Iranian female mountain explorer Nasim Eshqi, Swiss filmmakers who documented a cross-country skiing trip on the Silk Road, and representatives of Italy’s Val Grande National Park.

“I was pretty surprised. I was in shock when they got in touch with me,” Carey said. “I appreciate this award because it values the historical context that I bring into research on glaciers, climate change and natural hazards. And it recognizes the fundamental importance of cross-disciplinary collaborations, which I have increasingly put at the forefront of my research practices with concepts like hydro-social modeling and integrated disaster prevention.” › Continue reading
