Boise State will present the third annual public lecture series titled “Interdisciplinary Explorations – The Idea of Nature.” This series is inspired by the theme that big questions need interdisciplinary answers. The goal of the series is to foster the public humanities by bringing distinguished lecturers to Boise.
This year’s speakers include:
- Feb. 12 – Jedediah Purdy, “After Nature: Living in the Anthropocene”
- March 13 – Richard Brantley, “Emily Dickinson and Science”
- April 24 – Susan Oliver, “Getting to the Roots of the Matter: Trees in 19th Century Literature”
The lectures are free, open to the public and no tickets are required. The lectures will be held from 6-7 p.m. in the Student Union Simplot Ballroom. Each lecture will be followed by a reception with a no-host bar and appetizers. To reserve a spot at a reception, or for more information about free parking and the series, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit scholarworks.boisestate.edu/ideaofnature.
