The Evenings at Whitney Lecture Series continues Thursday, February 10, 2022, at 7:00pm. The lecture features author Cynthia Barnett’s latest program, “The Sound of the Sea: Seashells and the Fate of the Oceans”.
The award-winning environmental author and UF professor will introduce the long, rich and surprisingly profound relationship between humans and seashells. Traveling from Florida to the Bahamas to the Maldives, West Africa, and beyond, Barnett explores the ancient history of shells as global currency, their use as religious and luxury objects, and the remarkable marine mollusks that make them.
Barnett will present this free lecture in person at the UF Whitney Laboratory Lohman Auditorium.
Those interested also have the option of registering to watch via Zoom live the night of the lecture.
