The Western Environment: In Conversation with Wade Graham
Braided Waters: Environment and Society in Molokai, Hawaii
Wednesday, December 5, 2018
4:00 – 5:00p.m.
Ahmanson Room, Botanical Center
Wrapping up this series curated by the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West, the environmental and cultural historian Wade Graham discusses his new book on the environmental history of the Hawaiian island of Molokai. Just as the Hawaiian island chain is a case study of environmental activism and history, so, too, is Molokai in microcosm. Joined by the Huntington’s own Daniel Lewis, Dibner Senior Curator of the History of Science and Technology, this discussion ranges widely over the terrain of evolution, non-human species variation, and the fate of an ever-vulnerable necklace of island ecologies in the heart of the Pacific.
