Research Rivers Seminar

Join us for the sixth meeting of the Research Rivers Seminar of the semester on April 28, 2017. 

Location: 12-1:30p in the Meyerson Conference Room, 2nd Floor, Van Pelt Library, Penn

 

In tandem with other LSRCorps initiatives, the River Research Seminar begins meeting 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 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).
