C. P. Snow Annual Lecture: Rosemary Mosco -- Drawn to Learn: Cartoons and Other Unusual Ways to Share Science
On Thursday, November 14 at 7pm in Textor 101, nature cartoonist Rosemary Mosco will discuss the challenges and joys of building a career that combines science and art. She'll reflect on the use of comics and other unusual media as tools for science advocacy, and explain how to turn research into an engaging final product that can be found taped to the Dean’s door as well as the grandparents’ fridge. Along the way, she'll share surprising facts about familiar flora and fauna.
A field naturalist by training, Rosemary Mosco is a science communicator whose work has included comics, field workshops, web sites, videos, podcasts, and games. In her own unique style, Mosco has created innovative work for a variety of prominent publications, for organizations such as the National Park Service and Mass Audubon, and for her own website http://birdandmoon.com/.
The C. P. Snow Lecture Series, the longest-running lecture series at the College, began in the School of Humanities and Sciences more than 40 years ago as a means of bridging the gap between the sciences and the humanities. The series was named after Sir Charles Percy Snow, a man who truly embodied the mission of the series for his work as an internationally renowned scientist, author, lecturer, and past member of the British cabinet.
