Shana Lee Hirsch publishes Anticipating Future Environments


M.A. in Cultural Studies alum Shana Lee Hirsch has published a new monograph, Anticipating Future Environments: Climate Change, Adaptive Restoration, and the Columbia River Basin, with University of Washington Press. In this book, Hirsch tells the story of restoration science in the Columbia River Basin, surveying its past and detailing the work of today’s salmon habitat restoration efforts. Her analysis offers critical insight into scientific practices, emerging approaches and ways of thinking, the incorporation of future climate change scenarios into planning, and the ultimate transformation—or adaptation—of the science of ecological restoration.

Shana Lee Hirsch is currently a postdoctoral research scientist in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering and the Associate Director of the University of Washington's division of the Pacific Marine Energy Center (PMEC).
