How should liberal arts education respond to climate change? What can the humanities and social sciences teach us about climate science and how to live well in warming world? Join a discussion on these questions with Ana Isabel Keilson and Justin Reynolds, Co-Founders and Co-Directors of the Gull Island Institute, whose mission is to reimagine liberal arts education for an era of climate change. Founded in 2022, the Institute runs programs for small cohorts of undergraduates and faculty on Penikese and Cuttyhunk Islands anchored in the pillars of academics, physical labor, and student self-governance. As well as a chance to learn more about the Institute and its approach to place-based learning, the event will be an opportunity to investigate together a question particularly important to our town. What can – and can’t – the natural sciences teach us about how to inhabit a place well?
