IAS Thursdays | Itasca: Reimagining a Scientific Field Station as Common Ground

February 4, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

Join the Institute for Advanced Study for their IAS Thursdays event series. The talk will cover aspects of Jonathan Schilling’s, own science background and mid-career transition to become Director at a scientific field station in northern Minnesota. He will introduce us to the Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories, a field station since 1909 within Itasca State Park boundaries and located at the headwaters of the Mississippi River. The talk will, as his title suggests, aim to share what field stations already provide as well as what they might enable, going forward, by opening doors to new interests that are similarly grounded in the meaning of place.
