Event description

Description

Drawing from his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea, author and University of Florida professor Jack Davis will talk about the role the Gulf of Mexico has played in the course of U.S. history. He is interested in the way people, from pre-Spanish natives to current shore-side residents, have organized their societies and individual lives around nature, how Gulf nature has been a positive force in human events, and how human activities have sometimes led to unintended consequences that have undermined the Gulf’s beneficence.

WSRE’s Public Square Speakers Series brings personalities, who have achieved renown for their contributions to education, the arts, sciences or media, to the Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio for public conversations on noteworthy topics and important issues. Public Square events are open to the public. Admission is free!
