This month our guest is Jack Pearson, another young leader who, as a recent college graduate, is currently on a Fulbright study grant in Jordan. Mary and Jack spoke over Zoom, Jack in his apartment in Amaan and Mary in her closet which is still doubling as a recording studio.
Jack’s undergraduate degree included studies in the history of science, the microbiology of ice and English. In his study and research, Jack brings to bear his perspective and insight as a scholar born in the year 2000. For his senior thesis he wrote a science fiction and fantasy novel exploring the ways human imperialism, industrialization and classism can unfold into the future, particularly in their impact on the planet and its ecosystems. These days, he’s learning Arabic and studying water conservation communication in Jordan, where water is precious, especially in these times of climate change.
