A couple upcoming events in town related to nature, climate change and the humanities.
A conference called "The Environmental Humanities in a Changing World" takes place this Friday and Saturday, 9-5, with a mix of speakers and topics, including resident notables Paul Muldoon and Princeton climate scientists Stephen Pacala and Rob Socolow. The conference, free and open to the public, is organized by Ken Hiltner (no relation, as far as we can tell), a visiting professor in the Princeton Environmental Institute. Click here for a schedule. The conference takes place on campus in Guyot 10--a room with challenging acoustics, so sit up close.
The Friends of the Princeton Public Library will host "A Conversation on Climate Change" with Stephen Pacala and Michael Lemonick on March 15, in a "supper club/salon" setting at the library. $50 gets you light fare and drinks beginning at 6:30pm, a conversation with two leading spokesmen on climate change, and the feeling of having supported your local library.
