The Water Belt: What Must and Could Happen around the Great Lakes?

March 9, 2022

The CHESS Distinguished Speaker Series returns with compelling talks on everything from the representation of Mexicanness in animated films to what could happen around the Great Lakes.

Rachel Haverlock, Ph.D. associate professor of English, at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Founder and Director of UIC Freshwater Lab discusses the Great Lakes.

The Great Lakes region has long borne a reputation for being the ‘Rust Belt’ characterized by deindustrialization and population decline. As a changing climate transforms water geography across the globe, what role might the region play? What are things that must occur to ensure the region’s viability? What are some of the economic, social and environmental possibilities for the Great Lakes basin in the 21st century and beyond?
