Subject: Launch of Agnese Nelms Haury program in Environment and Social Justice at University of Arizona
We are pleased to announce the Agnese Nelms Haury program in Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona funded by a $50 million endowment to the UA Foundation from her estate.
The program will support many activities of interest to cultural and political ecologists open to all including a visiting fellows program (come to Tucson on sabbatical! We will have some openings for this spring) and conferences.
At the University of Arizona the program is supporting several initiatives led by geographers including some graduate awards, undergraduate student engagement programs led by geographer Sallie Marston and Ben Champion, a border environment program coordinated by geographer Chris Scott etc.
Anthropology, archaeology, and southwest studies are also part of the program with strong links to cultural and political ecology.
As an aside, Mrs Haury’s was married to Emil Haury, friend of geographers, especially Carl Sauer. Mrs Haury herself was an amazing woman (see bio on web site)
