Biological Resilience

In this four-part series of presentations, Distinguished Professor and Chancellor’s Professor, Dr. Roger Hangarter, will use his photographs and videos to show how our own resilience hinges on the same fundamental processes that sustain biodiversity and to hopefully inspire audience members to explore local natural areas where they can see and learn more about the remarkable biodiversity we live among in Indiana.

Resilience & Memory Series

Archives and other carefully tended collections enable scientists to study change and promote ecologically sound, sustainable practices; communities to reconnect with shared history and important members who have passed; scholars to expand their knowledge; and artists to find inspiration to sustain and build upon traditions. This lecture series examines the role of archives, libraries, and museums in fostering resilience and sustaining, or silencing, memory.
