Boise State University recently laid out its lineup for its upcoming sixth annual "Idea of Nature Lecture Series."
series is meant to foster conversations on the environment across
campus and the community by presenting speakers who look at the
subject from a variety of perspectives.
On Feb. 16, Prof.
Laura Walls will examine Henry David Thoreau and his classic Walden,
focusing on what the poet and writer learned while living alone in
nature and what it means to today's world.
A month later,
Nalini Nadkarni will focus on the remarkable and varied ways rain
forests recover after disturbances. Her talk will rely on religion, traffic engineering, neuroscience
and medicine to understand the complex processes going on in a rain
Scott Ashley will conclude the series on April 20 when he delves
into the past, tracing “historical reverbations” that can help us
understand our place on the Earth. Ashley works to decipher what we
know of a lost time and the origins of nature.
The lectures are free and open to the public. They will be presented
at 6 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom.
