Summer 2011 A publication of the Center for Environmental Studies, Williams College

Summary: Summer 2011
A publication of the Center for Environmental Studies, Williams College
54 Stetson Court, Williamstown, MA 01267
Dear Students, Alumni and Friends of CES,
2010-11 marked another exciting and productive year for environmental studies at Williams.
The new majors in environmental science and environmental policy, approved in April 2010,
had an excellent inaugural year. Four members of the Class of 2011 graduated with Envi Policy
degrees (in addition to three contract majors). Fifteen rising seniors and juniors have also
declared majors in Envi Science or Policy, and the original seven-course concentration remains
an attractive option for many others.
Meanwhile, our teaching faculty has expanded modestly in order to support the growth of
the curriculum: Pia Kohler and Nicolas Howe will join CES next fall as assistant professors of
environmental studies. Professor Kohler (Master of Environmental Science, Yale Forestry;
Ph.D., International Environmental Policy, MIT) comes to Williams after
teaching for several years at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Her
research examines the politics of science advice organizations, the
groups that provide and interpret scientific information to treaty-making
bodies. Nicolas Howe (M.A., Ph.D., Geography, UCLA) was one of
two CES postdoctoral fellows sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon
