H2O and the Waters of Life With Dr. Les Adler Wednesday, April 1, 2009

12:15pm, Newman Auditorium, Santa Rosa Campus

7 pm, Connie Mahoney Reading Room, Mahoney Library, Petaluma Campus

Water, the most indispensable ingredient for all life on earth, has been reduced in the modern imagination to the supportive, but narrow role of a valuable but increasingly scarce natural resource, controlled and managed like any other commodity. Dr. Les Adler offers an alternative perspective designed to deepen the discussion beyond the limiting vision of water as only resource to an examination of its far more basic and traditional place in human thought as source of life and, in many ways, of the very meaning of being human. Dr. Les Adler, is professor of history at the Hutchins School of Liberal Studies at SSU.  Co-Sponsored by the Environmental Forum and Friends of the Petaluma Campus.

Admission is FREE!*  Doors will open at 6pm. Please note, seating is limited and is first-come, first-served. *A $3 permit is required to park on campus.
