dc.description.abstractThe Global Change Center at Virginia Tech welcomed Dr. Naomi Oreskes, Harvard historian and author, for a Distinguished Lecture on September 2, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. at the Lyric Theatre in Blacksburg, VA. Dr. Oreskes is a professor of the history of science and affiliated professor of Earth and planetary sciences at Harvard University. Her research focuses on the earth and environmental sciences, with a particular interest in understanding scientific consensus and dissent. Dr. Oreskes has received international acclaim for her 2010 book, "Merchants of Doubt, How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco to Global Warming," co-authored with Erik M. Conway. It was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Time Book Prize, received the 2011 Watson-Davis Prize from the History of Science Society, and was recently adapted into a documentary film. Dr. Oreskes' visit represents the second in a Public Distinguished Lecture Series sponsored by the Global Change Center at Virginia Tech. The lecture series is designed to bring some of the world's leading scholars to the Blacksburg community to discuss critical environmental and societal issues in an open forum.en_US
