Wed., Feb. 3, 4:15 PM - Founders Room - Honnold/Mudd Library
Richard W. Hazlett, Professor of Geology, Pomona College

When we think of South Africa, we often think of the recent past, charged with the history of Apartheid. But South Africa is also one of the world's most important countries because of the natural resources it has provided to fuel the global economy. The history of globalization in this part of the world is over five centuries old; and the impacts both on the pre-colonial populations and the natural environment, including the fragile and spectacular Cape Floristic Province, have been significant. Professor Hazlett, who holds the first Stephen M. Pauley Chair in Environmental Analysis at Pomona College, will take us on a tour through South Africa, examining its environmental situation in the context of the region's history and development, with a brief look at the forecast for its climatic future as well.

Light refreshments will be provided.
