MARCH Visiting Scholar Series – a day with Dr. Sara J. Grossman


February 28, 2024    

11:15 am

1. “The Data of Climate Crisis” – book talk
Robeson Library, front room
*food provided

2. “Weather Printing: Rendering the Atmosphere of Shifting Climates” – workshop
Writers House, 305 Cooper Street
*snacks provided

Description of workshop: In this workshop, we will push against the notion that weather and climate knowledge is best rendered through numerical data. Instead, we will experiment with a form of weather rendering that utilizes cyanotype printing and the gathering of earth materials in the creation of a “local weather record.” Participants should wear close-toed shoes, and dress for the weather. Portions of this workshop will be held outside.
