Wednesday, April 19, 2017 - 12:30pmCollins Cinema
Since 2001, students and faculty from the sciences and the humanities at Wellesley College have travelled to Lake Baikal, Siberia, where they have worked together to conduct original scientific research and exchange ideas across multiple cultures. In this lecture by Marianne Moore, some of the scientific and cultural discoveries that created meaningful change for both Russians and Americans will be presented, emphasizing the power and unexpected benefits that can come from uniting the sciences with the humanities.
Moore, Frost Professor in Environmental Science and professor of biological sciences, has conducted research focusing on biodiversity and environmental change in Lake Baikal for more than 15 years.
Generously supported by the President’s Office.
