"A Sense of Wonder" -- Tuesday, March 3

From James Murton:

We are excited to announce a pre-release screening of A Sense of Wonder, the new documentary about pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson, as part of International Women's Week and brought to you by the Canada Research Chair in Environmental History and the IWW committee.

When pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson published Silent Spring in 1962, the backlash from her critics thrust her into the center of a political maelstrom. The film uses many of Carson's own words to depict the final year of her life, as she fought to get her message out while simultaneously struggling with cancer.
Tuesday, Mar 3, 6:30 pm, in Room H105.

With an introduction and discussion to follow, moderated by Dean Bavington and James Murton

See you there!
