Ai Weiwei's "Human Flow"
April 11, 2018
presented by Sarah Mead (Music) and Ramie Targoff (English)
This interdisciplinary series features viewing of original art and manuscripts housed at Brandeis and discussions led by faculty members.
March 28, 2018Without photographs, drawings, or well-written description, science can be difficult for a general audience to fully understand. Artists and writers can't explore the world's particularities without understanding them. Information and inspiration feed one another. Join us for a panel discussion of how art, science, and activism can converge. Panelists include a whale biologist trained in scientific illustration, the editor of an anthology of Eco-Justice poems, a naturalist who lectures on expedition ships, and a citizen science advocate.
Featuring: Melissa Tuckey, Scott Landry, Elizabeth Bradfield, and Colleen Hitchcock
