The Adirondack Museum Presents: “Cooling Mother Earth: New York's Footprint in Nature, Then and Now"
Join the Adirondack Museum for its next Cabin Fever Sunday program, "Cooling Mother Earth: New York's Footprint in Nature, Then and Now," on Sunday, March 10. This special Speaker in the Humanities event is sponsored by the Council on the Humanities and is free to attend.
Dr. Robert Spiegelman unearths the hidden roots of New Yorkers' conflicting views of nature, development and civilization— both then and now. To answer whether New Yorkers are stewards or lords of nature, he will present a vivid lecture/multimedia presentation that highlights key moments in the Empire State's development history— especially its Indian, Infrastructure and Conservation legacies. Dr. Spiegelman will then link these pivotal events to today's environmental crises.
Dr. Robert Spiegelman is President of Real-View Media, LLC. As a sociologist, multimedia artist and writer, Spiegelman presents widely on New York, Iroquois, Irish and environmental themes. The founder of SullivanClinton.com and Derryveagh.com, Spiegelman revisits hidden histories that link past and present, and foster indigenous values of peace, democracy and nature-in-balance. A college teacher for 12 years, he holds a Doctorate in Sociology from CUNY Graduate Center, and teaches it at several CUNY campuses.
This Cabin Fever Sunday program will take place at 1:30 p.m. in the museum’s auditorium and is offered free of charge.
