February 1 : 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5

Event Navigation

On February 1, 2018, Dr. Jack E. Davis, a professor of environmental history and sustainable studies at the University of Florida, kicks off the 2018 Florida Humanities Council Speakers’ Series.

Davis will talk about the role the Gulf of Mexico has played in the course of U.S. history. He is interested in the way people, from pre-Spanish natives to current shoreside residents, have organized their societies and individual lives around nature, and how Gulf nature has been a positive force in human events. Unfortunately, human activities have sometimes led to unintended consequences that have undermined the Gulf’s beneficence.

Free to members of the Friends of the Sarasota County History Center; $5 for non-members
