Natural And Unnatural Disasters Symposium

            Although the terrible series of January snowstorms (an inconvenience that almost seemed apropos given the subject matter) forced keynote speaker Simon Winchester to join us by video stream, our “Natural and Unnatural Disasters” symposium was a great success. Lee Clarke, Beatrice Magnani and Arleen Hill as well as Simon Winchester were all able to give extremely intellectually stimulating lectures on the realities of disasters in today’s society and their physical and human scope. The expert lineup and the relevance of the subject matter combined to create what was a truly fascinating event. If you weren't there, you missed out, but you can make it up to yourself by attending one of our many upcoming events!
