Humanities in the Wild: The Language of Landscapes

6:00-8:00pm Friday, August 30, 2019 Sunflower Outdoor & Bike Shop
Michael Compitello and Hannah Collins, Assistant Professors of Music
Humanities in the Wild is presented by the Public Humanities Roundtable, the Hall Center for the Humanities, eXplore Lawrence, Sunflower Outdoor & Bike Shop, the KU Indigenous Studies Program, the Departments of Communication Studies, History, and African and African-American Studies, the KU Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum, and The Commons.

Ever wondered what nature sounds like?
What about pollution?

Take an aural tour of the polluted landscape with Michael Compitello and Hannah Collins as they perform an interactive piece for cello, percussion, and electronics. Performed across the country, “The Language of Landscapes” dramatizes the pollution of our waterways and gives the audience opportunities to play music and save our rivers.

Join us for conversation, community, and a new perspective on human influence on the natural world.

Humanities in the Wild is a new series of events, coinciding with Final Fridays, designed to showcase the connections between humanities research and the great outdoors. From the politics of climate change to the history of conservation, from the culture of recreation to narratives of adventure, Humanities in the Wild presents ways in which the humanities provide unique insights into our relationship with nature.

Refreshments provided by Free State Brewing Company.
