Screening and discussion of "Fragile Legacy” a short film produced by CU alum David Brown.  The film uses Cornell's collection of antique Blaschka glass sea creatures as a point of departure in comparing the ocean of today to that of the Blaschkas' time (just prior to the 2nd Industrial Revolution).  The film features Drew Harvell of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and is narrated by Ted Danson.

CREST brings together Cornell faculty and graduate students committed to interdisciplinary environmental studies.  It is built on the premise that complex environmental issues can best be understood through familiarity with diverse perspectives--including those of the humanities, arts, social sciences, natural sciences, physical sciences, and, well, every other kind of science.  We strive to foster open communication, close collaboration, and new thinking about the ways in which our "green" scholarly pursuits relate to our teaching and our political commitments.
