April 9th, 2019: The Natural History Institute: Transdisciplinary Research Perspectives from the Field

Click here to view the April 9th webinar, featuring Dr. Tom Fleischner of The Natural History Institute and Prescott College. Dr Fleischner walks with us down his interdisciplinary path from political philosophy, public lands management, field biology and wilderness education and shares with us the lessons he learned through his practice of Natural History, which he defines as “The practice of intentional focused attentiveness and receptivity to the more-than-human world guided by honesty and accuracy.” He argues that Natural History is a field that requires input from science, art and the humanities. His talk and the discussion that follows touches on emotionality, especially love, the importance of stories and following your passion.
