Evolution geographer will speak in Arkville
“A View from the World Turned Downside Up” will be the topic of a talk by evolution geographer James MacAllister at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6, at the Catskill Center, 43355 state Route 28.
The program is free, but there is a $5 suggested donation.
MacAllister, an awardwinning script writer and director of programs in medicine and science, worked with biologist Lynn Margulis for 10 years creating teaching materials for her classes in “Big Earth History” and earth systems science.
As one of Margulis’ teaching assistants, he earned his master’s degree in science and became a fellow of the Linnean Society and a volunteer archivist for the Lynn Margulis Digital Archive, which produces the quarterly Environmental Evolution newsletter (www.envevo.org) and is collaborating with Bruce Scofield to present an online version of Margulis’s environmental evolution course.
