Scientists Live: Nicole Heller
October 25, 2018, 10:30 am - 11:00 am
Nicole Heller, Curator of the Anthropocene, will do a broadcast on Facebook Live to share items in the Carnegie Museum of Natural History collections that relate to the essay collection Future Remains: A Cabinet of Curiosities for the Anthropocene. Dr. Heller co-wrote the lead essay “Anthropocene in a Jar” with Assistant Professor in Anthropology at the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Tomas Matza. The essay mediates on the blurry boundaries, and often vexed relationship, between human development and natural processes through the lens of a jar of curiously patterned sand and shells collected at Wrightsville Beach.
The broadcast will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will include a question and answer segment.
Tune in at facebook.com/carnegiemnh. A recording will be posted later for those unable to watch live.
