Seeing the World, as the First Step Toward Saving It

Illustrated Lecture
Time: 4:30pm
Location: Mahaney Center for the Arts, Robison Concert Hall

Bill McKibben, Schumann Distinguished Scholar


With reference to images in the exhibition Land and Lens, Schumann Distinguished Scholar Bill McKibben discusses recent ways of seeing that satellites and scientific instruments have provided us. As the first generations able to visualize the earth in all its glory and pain, McKibben expects us to draw some clues about how to protect it going forward.
