Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Responding to climate change: poetry and local action
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Robin Chapman and Jean Bahr, UW Department of Communicative Disorders and Department of Geoscience
Abstract: What can individuals do? Robin Chapman reads from her new book of poems, One Hundred White Pelicans, work that arose from the Chaos and Complex Systems Seminars on climate change; and Jean Bahr talks about local action, including reroofing her house with solar shingles: they engage the questions of causal contributions to change, now and in the past; why it should matter to us now; and what we can do about it. Students and investigators in the field are especially welcome to contribute to discussion.
