UConn Humanities Institute Presents:
WAR AND ITS MEANINGS
DAY IN THE HUMANITIES 2013: “SILENT SPRINGS” April 5, 2013
Student Union Theater, Storrs Campus – April 5, 2013 – DAY IN THE HUMANITIES: “SILENT SPRINGS” – Student Union Theater
In 1962 the publication of Silent Spring by Rachel Carson radically altered the way in which people from around the world viewed their relationship with the environment. Today we celebrate the 50th anniversary of this work by Carson and look to the future. How can humanists and scientists come together to better interact with our environments from local, national, and global perspectives? Who has a voice in environmental decisions–and, as important, who does not? How do we learn from our past, effect our present, and safeguard our future?
Please plan to join us, this even is free and open to the public.
