Petersen Room, Allen Library, University of Washington
Free and open to the public.
Reception to follow.
Lissa K. Wadewitz will present a lecture based upon her recently published book, The Nature of Borders: Salmon, Boundaries, and Bandits on the Salish Sea (Seattle: Center for the Study of the Pacific Northwest, in association with University of Washington Press, 2012). Richard White (Stanford University) describes it as “the first book anyone interested in Pacific Salmon should read,” and Joseph E. Taylor III considers it “an excellent and timely examination of how humans have organized ecological and social space across time.”
Wadewitz is an assistant professor of history and environmental studies at Linfield College, in McMinnville, Oregon. Her book and lecture are the latest in the Emil and Kathleen Sick Series in Western History and Biography.
Sponsored by the Center for the Study of the Pacific Northwest, University of Washington Press, and University of Washington Libraries.
