Hungry for a lunchtime lecture?

Tuesday, September 6, 2022 by Tai Moses

Austin Water’s Center for Environmental Research invites community members to attend a series of lunchtime lectures focusing on the life and legacy of the German explorer, polymath, abolitionist and naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. Among Humboldt’s many discoveries and contributions is the idea of the interconnectedness of all living things, which he called the “unity of nature.” The first lectures examined “our Western ideas of nature and the study of nature which laid the foundations for Humboldt’s ideas.” The lectures are free and open to the public. Masks are required. Tuesday, Sept. 6, 12:30-2 p.m., UT Austin, Norman Hackerman Building, 100 E. 24th St., room 1.720. View the full lecture schedule and recording archives here.
