Future Climate in the Laboratory and in Performance
In collaboration with the Science, Humanities and Arts: Process and Engagement (SHAPE) program, there will be a public presentation of final projects for the course, Transforming Exclusion to Expression: Gender and Race in Climate Science on Dec. 10 11 a.m. -1 p.m.
In the course, students took an artistic eye to interviews they conducted with climate scientists.
This course is one of several designed to integrate science with the humanities and arts as part of SHAPE – Science, Humanities and Arts: Process and Engagement. “Through SHAPE, students will encounter the humanities, arts, and sciences integrated to express and examine the power each holds as a means of responding to our world…”
The course was taught by Associate Professor Margaret Laurena Kemp, theatre and dance, and Professor Dawn Sumner, earth and planetary science, and offered through the UC Davis University Honors program through the office of Undergraduate Education.
The SHAPE program was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
