UA Science Cafe at Borderlands Brewing Company – 'Stories from Alaska's Melting Edge'
Presenter: Hannah Hindley, Ph.D. student in the Department of English and Institute of the Environment Fellow
About the talk: As a nonfiction writer, Hindley's current research revolves around endangered landscapes, in particular, Alaska's glacier country. Last summer, Hannah embedded herself in the post-boom mining town of Kennicott, nestled in the heart of Wrangell St. Elias National Park. There, she gathered stories from scientists, seasonal workers and long-term residents in America's largest glacial landscape. Learn about the immense park, the tiny town and the community's evolving relationship with the warming landscape.
About Science Cafes: Science Cafes, presented by the UA College of Science, bring the community together with UA scientists and graduate students in a casual setting. You'll learn about the latest research being conducted, get to know the faces behind the science, and have opportunities to ask questions and deepen your understanding. We have five separate cafe series at five different locations around Tucson, each with their own themes for fascinating science discussions.
