Symposium Update! Chris Manganiello, Geo

February 6, 2016

Symposium Update!

Chris Manganiello, Georgia River Network’s ​policy director, will join ten leading writers and scholars in history and literature to present original research on critical topics about Georgia’s coast ​ ​ for the ​ ​upcoming ‘ Coastal Nature, Coastal Culture: Environmental Histories of the Georgia Coast ​ ​ Symposium ​’​ ​!​

Why does the Georgia coast matter? For over 5,000 years, people and cultures influenced, and were shaped by, Georgia’s 100-mile coastline, barrier islands and lowcountry. This first-of-its-kind symposium will build a much-needed bridge between the history of the American South and the booming field of environmental history.

The changing landscapes on Georgia’s coastal plain reflect the interaction of different visions and cultures with the natural environment. The history of Georgia’s people, land, and water reveals how the past has shaped the present and could affect the future.

WHEN: Thursday, February 18 – Saturday, February 20, 2016
WHERE: Coastal Georgia Center, 305 Fahm Street, Savannah
HOW: For more information and to register, visit http://www.gacoast2016.org OR call 912-233-5104
WHO: The Symposium is a project of The Ossabaw Island Foundation, Armstrong State University and the Wormsloe Institute for Environmental History
