Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point Author Talk


Wednesday, September 19, 6:30 p.m.

 

 

The Academy’s Ted Daeschler hosts an exciting discussion with world-renownned photographer, writer, and activist Subhankar Banerjee.  Banerjee’s recent book, Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point, brings together narratives from prominent activists, writers, and researchers who address issues of climate change, resource war, and human rights.  Banerjee will be joined by Cindy Shogan, executive director of the Alaska Wilderness League.

The Arctic is a destination for Ted Daeschler, whose studies of Devonian fossils have helped scientists learn more about the early evolution of limbed animals.  He travels to Ellsmere Island in the Canadian Arctic every other year to study Devonian-era fossils that play a key role in helping scientists to understand the early evolution of limbed animals.
