Virtual Middlebury

Open to the Public

A Environmental Studies Colloquium Series talk titled “How to Narrate the Watershed” by Rachel Havrelock, Professor of English, University of Illinois at Chicago.

The Freshwater Lab at the University of Illinois at Chicago endeavors to tell multivocal, community-based stories that highlight the urgency of attending to the collapse of watersheds and disintegration of infrastructure. To date, the Lab has created Freshwaterstories.com, thebackwardriver.org, and a tool to help orient people in terms of their water’s source, path to them, and interconnected people. This interactive talk will discuss process and content while exploring questions about agency, power, and influence when it comes to representing water.

Rachel Havrelock is Professor of English at the University of Illinois at Chicago where she also directs The Freshwater Lab, an environmental humanities initiative focused on the North American Great Lakes and environmental justice.

This talk will be VIRTUAL please click here to join via zoom or visit go/woodincolloquiumseries for more information.
