A Woven World: Making and Unmaking our Histories Through Science and Art
Alison Hawthorne Deming has built her long career on using poetry and prose to communicate about science and natural world. In her newest book, A Woven World: On Fashion, Fishermen, and the Sardine Dress, Deming explores the beauty and fragility of human making, and what it can tell us about our own natural histories. For whether we are dressmakers, fishermen, or writers, our culture is deeply interwoven with environment.
Join Alison and NHI Program Director Jessie Rack in a wide-ranging webinar conversation about how science and art can work together to effect change, and about the importance of knowing where we came from.
