Maya Khosla's lecture for Lookout: Envisioning Futures with Wildfire
Everyone is invited to attend this live Zoom event with Maya Khosla. She'll be exploring connections between biodiversity and wildfire as part of Spring Creek Project's lecture series "Lookout: Envisioning Futures with Wildfire."

Maya Khosla is a wildlife biologist, writer, and filmmaker focusing on forest biodiversity with a special focus on the wild after wildfire in intact forests. She is the creator of the short film "Searching for the Gold Spot: The Wild after Wildfire." She served as Sonoma County Poet Laureate (2018-2020), bringing Sonoma’s communities together through poetry gatherings and field walks after the 2017 fires. Sonoma County Conservation Council selected her as one of the 2020 Environmentalists of the Year. Her books include “All the Fires of Wind and Light” (2020 PEN Oakland/Josephine Miles Literary Award), “Keel Bone” (Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize), and “Web of Water: Life in Redwood Creek.”

"Lookout: Envisioning Futures with Wildfire" is an 11-week series exploring how we are shaping this era of megafires and how it is shaping us. Speakers from across the arts, humanities, and environmental sciences will help us scan the horizon for the ideas and stories that can guide us through this critical and disorienting time.

Talks in the series will be broadcast live on Zoom Tuesdays at 6 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. EST from January 4 to March 15. Learn more and register for other talks here: https://bit.ly/3lHTlex

This series is hosted by the Spring Creek Project and the Environmental Arts and Humanities Initiative at Oregon State University (OSU) and co-sponsored by OSU's Arts and Education Complex, OSU's Center for the Humanities, OSU's Sustainability Office, and Terrain.org. Khosla's lecture is also co-sponsored by OSU's School of Writing, Literature, and Film.
