So, Chris and I were just minding our own business in Physics class, but poetry has a way of chasing us down. Here's our first co-curricular activity for our class, SeaChange: Reversing the Tide, but you might be interested in attending, too. Gee, Talia, this would probably be a good article for the Preface, or the Tribune, or something. It seems very naked and exploratory.
"This dramatic lecture is by Roger Payne, an internationally acclaimed marine biologist best known for his work on whale behavior, and Lisa Harrow, an award-winning actress known for her work with the Royal Shakespeare Company, and her work in films and numerous BBC and American TV shows.
"Roger Payne has been featured in over 40 documentary films for television and co-wrote and co-directed the IMAX film 'Whales.'
"The lecture includes Roger's experiences working with whales and vast understanding of environmental science combined with the power of prose and poetry by William Shakespeare, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Wendell Berry, Mary Oliver and other poets. This duo has performed throughout the United States, New Zealand, and Mexico. Their performance has been noted for its success in making the science more accessible, and for its encouragement of individual action in working towards creating a sustainable society."
