A former top environmental affairs official in the Obama administration who took a leading role in international climate change diplomacy will join a number of classes, consult with scholars at the Institute of Arctic Studies, and deliver a Great Issues lecture this week as a visiting scholar at the Dickey Center. Kerri-Ann Jones, assistant secretary of state for oceans and international environmental and scientific affairs from 2009 to 2014, holds a public lecture on “Negotiating for the Planet: Environmental & Climate Change Diplomacy” at 4:30p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 13, in Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall. 

“I’ve been astonished by the interest we’ve seen,” says Daniel Benjamin, Director of the Dickey Center. “She’s been invited to guest lecture in at least five courses and will be meeting with an extraordinary range of faculty, undergraduates and graduate students. In my view, that’s strong proof of the campus-wide interest in the broad areas of climate and science diplomacy.”

Jones will be in residence from Jan. 12 through Jan. 16. Read the entire story by Bill Platt on Dartmouth Now
