Marcy Rockman

US National Park Service (NPS) Climate Change Adaptation Coordinator for Cultural Resources

Marcy Rockman is the US National Park Service (NPS) Climate Change Adaptation Coordinator for Cultural Resources, based in Washington, DC. An archaeologist by training, her research focus is how humans gather, share, remember, and transmit environmental information, particularly during colonization. She’s done fieldwork across the American West and Europe and in the Middle East and has worked in environmental compliance in many western states as well. Marcy began work in the DC policy world as an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science & Technology Policy Fellow in which capacity she connected archaeology to homeland security risk communication at the US Environmental Protection Agency. Her current role at the NPS addresses impacts of climate change on cultural heritage and use of cultural heritage information in federal- to global-level climate adaptation and mitigation planning. Her major publications include the volumes Colonization of Unfamiliar Landscapes: The Archaeology of Adaptation and Archaeology in Society: Its Relevance in the Modern World, and the new NPS Cultural Resources Climate Change Strategy. Marcy has a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of Arizona, and B.Sc. in Geology from the College of William and Mary.
