Katharine A. Owens

I have undergraduate degrees in Studio Art, Biology and Anthropology, a Masters in Environmental Studies, and a PhD in Sustainability and Governance. 

I am a full-time associate professor in the department of Politics, Economics, and International Studies at the University of Hartford, Connecticut.

I have also been creating art (primarily as a printmaker) for over twenty years.  

My work explores themes such as environmental degradation, climate change, extinction, technology, free speech, and policy.
