Justin Hosbey (Assistant Professor, Emory University), Tessa Rose Farmer (Assistant Professor, University of Virginia) and Caterina Scaramelli (Assistant Professor, Boston University)

Strassler Center Professors Sultan Doughan and Frances Tanzer organized a workshop to examine climate induced displacement, its historical implications, and current dimensions. They directed a wide-ranging conversation with Justin Hosbey (Emory University), Caterina Scaramelli (Boston University), and Tessa Rose Farmer (University of Virginia) that highlighted the connections between three case studies: post- Katrina New Orleans, the wetlands of Turkey, and water-scarce Cairo. The discussion captured historical and anthropological perspectives that enable a reframing of our understanding of climate and displacement not only as a looming crisis but also as a historical and ongoing reality.
