Princeton Environmental Institute highlights senior thesis by Peter Schmidt ’20

Thursday, Jul 9, 2020

For his senior thesis, Peter Schmidt ’20 wrote a novel titled A Mountain There which gives a voice to Bolivia’s Cerro Rico or “rich mountain” known for being the largest silver mine and its nearly 500 years of violent history. Schmidt spent a year in Bolivia through Princeton’s Novogratz Bridge Year Program where he first witnessed the mining of Cerro Rico and years later, it became his inspiration for his senior thesis.

The Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) recently published more details about Schmidt’s thesis work. To read the full article, please view the PEI website.
