Presenter: Scott Russell Sanders
We live in a culture obsessed with private financial wealth. We pay much less attention and offer less protection to the forms of wealth that we share, especially the goods of nature, such as the atmosphere and oceans, and the goods of culture, such as the arts and public parks and legal institutions. Sanders' slide lecture will identify elements of our common wealth, explain why they are vital to human well-being, and explore ways in which they might be reclaimed and restored. Scott Russell Sanders, Distinguished Professor of English at Indiana University, is the author of twenty books of fiction and nonfiction, including A Private History of Awe and A Conservationist Manifesto.
