2017 GTU Speaker Matt Huber

By Geography Department on November 2, 2017

Professor Matt Huber, of Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs was Colgate Geography Department’s 2017 Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU) speaker. His talk was titled “Who produced your carbon footprint? Class, climate, and the politics of responsibility.” Professor Huber works on a range of topics and he is most well known for his work on oil and energy geographies. As a political ecologist who examines capitalism’s forces over the world and on the world’s resources, many of geographers find points of intersection with his work.

Afterwards, GTU members, new and old, met with the speaker at a dinner.
