Left Handed Polar Bears? That's crazy talk!

Don't miss our next Evening at Egan lecture series, 'Left Handed Polar Bears with Richard Nelson', this Friday at 8pm!!

Dr. Richard Nelson reflects on forty years of his experiences as an ethnographer and writer in Alaska. His slides evoke the treasures of Alaska's cultural and natural heritage, while his stories underscore the value of preserving this heritage. Along the way, Dr. Nelson discusses the importance of descriptive ethnography, of learning from native traditions, of working with both the heart and mind engaged, of involving ourselves in true collaboration with indigenous communities, of learning to write well both for other anthropologists and for general readers, and of helping the next generation of Alaskan anthropologists to create themselves.

Seadogs and Toothwalkers

On Wednesday at 8pm, 360 North will be showing the Albert Karvonen short film Seadogs and Toothwalkers. Join this watery world...where devoted walrus mothers cradle their infants and migrate to remote Arctic shores, where West Coast seals and sea lions go about their fishy business, and where the waters can turn into a death-trap at a moment’s notice. Mr. Karvonen has been specializing in natural history films since 1976.

360 North focuses on natural history and outdoor programs on Wednesday nights. Don't miss Seadogs and Toothwalkers this Wednesday at 8pm!
