SueEllen Campbell created and for over a decade curated the website "100 Views of Climate Change," a multidisciplinary collection of pieces accessible to interested non-specialists. She is especially interested in the lived human experience of climate change - and in how many different facets of our lives these changes touch on.
As co-founder and co-director of Changing Climates at Colorado State University, a decade-long program supported by CMMAP, an NSF Science and Technology Center, she organized some 120 talks on campus by as many different faculty members (drawn from over 25 departments and all 8 colleges); offered communication training for scientists and others wishing to speak clearly to non-specialists; and ran the 100 Views website.
With a B.A. in English and Art/Art History from Rice University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in English from the University of Virginia, SueEllen spent over forty years teaching university students, most of them at Colorado State, where she focused on the (mostly nonfiction) literature of nature and the environment, a choice that led her into the topic of climate change. Her books include Even Mountains Vanish: Searching for Solace in an Age of Extinction (2003) and The Face of the Earth: Natural Landscapes, Science, and Culture (2011). Now happily retired, she lives near Fort Collins, Colorado, with her husband and their dachshund.
