Schuylkill River Research Seminar at Van Pelt Library

Please join us for our third meeting of the Schuylkill River Research Seminar in Penn Libraries. Exact location TBD. 

In tandem with other LSRCorps initiatives, the River Research Seminar begins meeting in October 2016. It is a collaborative place-based research seminar designed to build a core of regional scholars whose work explores the Schuylkill River and Philadelphia’s urban waters, connecting them across disciplines from hydrology to history. The seminar works closely with community partners whose collaboration also informs the seminar’s research questions and priorities.

The Meyerson Conference Room is on the second floor of Van Pelt, which is just up Locust Walk from 34th and Walnut. The entrance faces the giant sculpture of a button on the campus side of the building. You will need ID to enter the building.

Refreshments will be provided. 

The seminar is convened by Laurie Allen (Assistant Director of Digital Scholarship, Penn Libraries), Peter DeCarlo (Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering and Chemistry, Drexel University), Danielle Redden (Director of River Programs, Bartram’s Garden), and Bethany Wiggin (Associate Professor of German and Director, Penn Program in Environmental Humanities).
