The first time M Jackson visited NYC, she stayed in my miserable little railroad apartment in South Williamsburg. M, who grew up on a farm and spent much of her childhood in Alaska, looked out my window and onto my fire escape and asked “but… where do you keep your cattle?”

Fast forward a few years, and now M, a cultural geographer and glaciologist is working primarily in Iceland where she studies the relationship Icelanders have with their countless glaciers, inevitable melting because of human activity, and that impact on their culture and livelihoods.
