Promoting education and research in Geology, Archaeology, Anthropology, Energy and Environmental Sciences.
|The ISEM Mission|
The ISEM benefits the community by promoting and supporting interdisciplinary research at the interface of people, Earth, and the environment, and shares the results of that research with the broader community in meaningful ways.
Organized to enhance the departments of anthropology, geological sciences, and statistics at SMU, the ISEM fosters:
1) Interdisciplinary and Multidisciplinary Research in geology, anthropology, archaeology, energy, and the environment;
The ISEM produced an acclaimed photographic exhibition, Espacios Sagrados/Sacred Space: Man and the Divine in Mexico, Central America and the Southwestern United States, featured at the State Fair of Texas. This monumental exhibition of over 200 images, some as tall as 27 feet, arranged in 13,000 square feet, celebrates the history and cultures of the region. A bilingual educational CD-ROM was created for this exhibition to provide a resource for teachers and school children.
The Institute for the Study of Earth and Man annually bestows the internationally prestigious Hollis D. Hedberg Award in Energy. For information on Hedberg Award recipients and on ISEM sponsored research, visit the ISEM Hedberg Award website.
