The American Wilderness: Past, Present and Future

What is the state of America's wilderness? For an answer to this question and many others, please join us for what will prove to be a very informative speech on America's wilderness.

Dr. Roderick Nash completed his B.A. at Harvard University in history and literature and his M.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin in 1964, specializing in American intellectual history. He taught briefly at Dartmouth College before coming to the University of California, Santa Barbara. Among his ten books, Professor Nash is best known for Wilderness and the American Mind, first published in 1967 and now in its third edition. His most recent monograph is The Rights of Nature: A History of Environmental Ethics (1989), Dr. Nash founded the multidisciplinary major in environmental studies at UCSB. Through his career Dr. Nash has received many awards; he was named a Lindbergh Fellow, delivered the keynote address at the fourth World Wilderness Conference, and was voted UCSB's professor of the year in 1990.

We hope you will join us for Professor Nash's important address.

Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum

The Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum was conceived as a place where students and faculty could gather for intellectual discourse in an intimate and relaxed setting and integrate their academic and social lives. Public programs are scheduled Monday through Thursday during the academic year and are publicized through the bi-weekly newsletter, The Fortnightly.

While events are primarily for students, the Athenaeum hosts lunches, dinners, and receptions for academic classes, student organizations, and official functions of the College.
