About Dr. Havrelock:
Dr. Rachel Havrelock is the founder and director of the UIC Freshwater Lab and professor of English at the University of Illinois at Chicago. A childhood of swimming in the Great Lakes created an indissoluble bond with water. Decades of research in the Middle East led to her books River Jordan and The Joshua Generation, as well as to a position on the Ecopeace Middle East International Advisory Committee. Since 2015, Dr. Havrelock has focused on Great Lakes research and teaching a new generation of water leaders. She believes that the Great Lakes watershed can survive and thrive amidst accelerated climate change, but that a series of necessary actions must occur now. Through community collaboration, the Freshwater Lab has created both The Backward River and the Freshwater Stories digital platforms; hosted public events and festivals, and installed permanent artworks in the Canalport Riverwalk Park.
