Wednesday, October 27, 2021. 12:00 PM. Webinar: Mellon Forum: “HighWaterLine: New Jersey”. Christina Gerhardt and Jerry Zee, High Meadows Environmental Institute. Sponsored by HMEI. Register here.
Christina Gerhardt, HMEI’s Barron Visiting Professor in the Environmental Humanities and visiting faculty in the German Department, will discuss her project, “HighWaterLine: New Jersey,” which engages the public in walking and chalking the state’s projected future shoreline to demonstrate how sea-level rise will affect New Jersey. HighWaterLine provides an opportunity to experience the future shoreline first-hand and to consider ways to address sea-level rise impacts, for example, via urban and architectural design. Gerhardt carried out a similar project in Honolulu in January 2020.
Gerhardt will join in discussion with Jerry Zee, assistant professor of anthropology and the High Meadows Environmental Institute.
