Raven, Rocks, and the Anthropocene: the bird's-eye view of future Earth

Tom Thornton, University of Oxford

Egan Library, UAS

Abstract: In Southeast Alaska and other Pacific landscapes we find narratives of understanding and adapting to change in the stories of Raven’s transformations and other socially and ecologically cataclysmic events, such as the Flood. How might such stories prepare us for the environmental changes of the Anthropocene?


ACRC Fall Semester Brown Bag Lecture Series

The Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center is hosting a Brown Bag Lunchtime Lecture series during the fall semester. Talks will be on Wednesdays from noon—1pm at the new Forestry Sciences Lab adjacent to the UAS campus. The lunchtime speaker series is meant to be an informal avenue for graduate students, faculty, and professionals to present new and existing research and scholarship, brainstorm ideas, and have the opportunity to receive feedback in an informal setting.  We invite all interested persons to join us to learn about the exciting research projects and collaborations that are happening in Southeast Alaska.
