Geologic Analogs to Future Global Change

HSU Campus
HSU's Sustainable Futures Speaker Series presents Richard Norris of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

Norris works on climate and evolution in the oceans on a variety of time scales, with a focus on the processes that structure marine biodiversity. These studies rely on fossils and geochemical analysis of marine sediment cores and the zoogeography of modern plankton and fish.

He is also interested in human impacts on the environment, and forecasting where the “tipping points” lie in marine ecosystems.

Norris’s background includes a BS from UC Santa Cruz, a MS from the University of Arizona, and a Ph.D. from Harvard University. He was a postdoc and research scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute before joining Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2002.

Silk Road of Pop

Goodwin Forum
On the distant northwest edge of China lies Xinjiang, a vast region of snow-capped mountains, barren deserts and gritty market cities. Here, along the ancient Silk Road, music is one of the hottest commodities: it is vibrant, infectious, and far-reaching, permeating every corner of the province. Yet, around the music lies a troubling reality. Engaged in an identity tug-of-war, the region’s main population — the Uyghur Muslims — are gradually watching their populations dwindle as they are engulfed by a predominant Han Chinese settlement. One of the very few documentaries to come out of Xinjiang, The Silk Road of Pop captures the challenges of a minority group in China and the explosive music scene which results.
