Description

Congratulations to Dr. Tessa Jacobs, who has just defended her timely dissertation, _Fire on Mountain Drive: Community Dynamics and Personal Narrative in a Wildfire-Prone Landscape_. Tessa addresses narrative meaning-making and vernacular environmental knowledge in a California community and shows that these guide us to an understanding of environmental disaster as chronic condition rather than discrete event. Her committee consisted of Katey Borland, Tommy Davis, Amy Shuman, and Dorry Noyes as chair.
