Wild visions: imaging and imagining the American wilderness

Center for Biology + Society, Conversation Series

Ben Minteer, Professor, School of Life Sciences, Arizona State University
Mark Klett, Regents' Professor of Art
Michelle Sullivan, Graduate student, School of Life Sciences, Arizona State University

What’s wild? It’s a question that has long occupied our best nature writers and photographers, from John Muir and Ansel Adams to Eliot Porter and Edward Abbey. Their arguments and images — sometimes fused together — have anchored wilderness advocacy and policy for a century. But they’ve also made mischief. Join us for a conversation about our new creative project (developed with Steve Pyne) exploring how photography and environmental thought intersect on
the face of the American wild.

Join us for a series of conversations at the intersection of biology and society.

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP here.
