Welcome to Seven New Members!

Dr. Nestor Campos (Spain) is a specialist in physical geography and glaciology. He is currently writing two papers on topics in glaciology and related conference presentations. These areas of research seem doubly relevant in an era of climate fragility. Dr. Nestor is currently pursuing postdoctoral fellowship positions.
Dr. Ariane Dalla Dea (USA) is working on topics in gender, race, class, economics, politics, labor, mental health, and culture. She brings deep expertise in anthropology and knowledge of Brazilian society into these studies: “Through theories from anthropology of experience, performance, symbols, and mimesis, I examine the symbolic actions and the role of representations of identity and everyday life experiences in producing social change within the Brazilian framework.”
Christian Gibbons (USA), a new associate member, is a fourth-year undergraduate student at Emerson College, where he studies the phenomenon of globalization in relation to contemporary issues that it has engendered in the fields of communication studies, political science, economic science, and philosophy. We look forward to hearing his paper on “Reimagining Communities in a Globalized World: Prospects for Global Citizenship” at our UMass Amherst conference in June.
Professor Tim Haste (France) is a British nuclear physicist (Ph.D. Oxford University, England), who until his recent retirement was a senior scientist specializing in severe accident research. His long career working on international nuclear safety projects has taken him from England to Norway, the USA, Italy, Switzerland, and latterly France, where he worked a total of 12 years for the Institut de Radioprotection et de Sureté Nucléaire (IRSN). As well as consultancy work, he continues in his role as Visiting Professor at Imperial College, London.
Dr. Elizabeth Keohane-Burbridge (USA) studies two distinct periods of history: the history of medieval England, between 1280 and 1536, and the history of the United States from 1890 to the present day. We look forward to hearing her paper on “Podcasts: Public History: Public History: Real History? What does 21st-century scholarship look like?” at our UMass Amherst conference in June.
Dr Karama Neal (USA) writes and publishes in the fields of bioethics research, asset development, applied economics, and microeconomic policy. At the same time, she works at a nonprofit that provides financial support to underserved populations. Her recent publications include “Rural Economic Mobility and Wealth Building” and  “Property and Economic Mobility: Tools for Policy and Practice”. Both publications appear in the MDC Inc. State of the South Blog.
The research of Dr. Renee Neely (USA) centers on the narratives of underserved and suppressed people in the U. S. during the Civil War era.  Many of her subjects were people of color but she also studies the historical narratives of white indentured servants and sharecroppers (landless white Southerners). Dr. Neely works both as an archivist and an artist and analyzes both linear and non-linear knowledge
