Lecture: "What Is A Waterway Anyway?"
"What Is A Waterway Anyway?"
Saturday, January 18, 2020 | 2:00 PM | Wooden Boat School Classroom
$5/person | HRMM Members FREE
Waterways have played a major role in shaping the history of New York State, but what is a waterway exactly? Looking at a handful of examples of ‘natural’ and ‘unnatural,’ or built, waterways, Daniel Rinn invites the audience to consider the myriad ways nature shapes, and is shaped by human culture. This program supports the Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibit, Water/Ways.
Daniel Rinn grew up behind the Redwood Curtain in northern California and has spent much of his life drawn to the outdoors as a result. In large part a product of this biographical detail, his doctoral research at the University of Rochester examines the history of American environmentalism. His work has appeared in journals, books, and online in The Washington Post as well as other digital formats.
