SNRAS professor to speak at Cambridge University

Professor Glenn Juday

Dr. Glenn Juday, professor of forest ecology in SNRAS, has been invited to give a series of seminars at Cambridge University in the UK Jan. 29 – Feb. 1, and a talk at Oxford is in the planning stage. At Cambridge, Juday will be hosted by Pembroke College. Pembroke is the earliest of the Cambridge Colleges to operate on its original site with an unbroken constitution from its founding. The College and its chapel resulted from a Papal Bull, and were licensed in 1347.

The invitation stems from SNRAS support and collaboration through Juday’s research group with a project of Dr. Barbara Bodenhorn, Newton Trust lecturer and member of the core academic staff in social anthropology at Cambridge. In 2009 and 2011 Bodenhorn taught the class "Ecology and People of the Arctic" made up of 20 undergraduate and high school students, half from Ohacha, Mexico, and half from rural Alaska. Juday, assisted by post-doctoral researcher Dr. Tom Grant, conducted a two-day class and field trip to Bonanza Creek Experimental Forest for the classes.
