Bathsheba Demuth's Pandemic as Portal lecture
Everyone is welcome to attend this live Zoom event with Bathsheba Demuth. She'll be presenting her talk "Portrait of a Summer on Fire: Covid, Climate Change, and the Ties that Bind Us" as part of Spring Creek Project's lecture series "Pandemic as Portal: Creating a Just Future on Earth." After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join the event.

Bathsheba Demuth is an Assistant Professor of History and Environment and Society at Brown University. An environmental historian, she specializes in the lands and seas of the Russian and North American Arctic. Her prize-winning first book, Floating Coast: An Environmental History of the Bering Strait (W.W. Norton), was named a Nature Top Ten Book of 2019 and Best Book of 2019 by NPR, Barnes and Noble, Kirkus Reviews, and Library Journal among others. From the archive to the dog sled, she is interested in how the histories of people, ideas, places, and other-than-human species intersect.

Pandemic as Portal is a nine-week series featuring visionary thinkers who are imagining the world anew as it reconfigures in the midst of the pandemic. Each speaker will explore their highest vision of environmental and social justice, think about the crucial steps we can take as individuals and communities to bring that vision to life, and share stories of how this new paradigm is already taking shape.

The series will be broadcast live on Zoom Tuesdays at 6 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. EST from January 12 to March 9. Other speakers include Kim Stanley Robinson, Erin Moore, J. Drew Lanham, Mazin Jamal, KJ Song, Michael Paul Nelson, Elizabeth Sawin, Nia E. Martin-Robinson, and Vanessa Raditz.
