The Lay of the Land: Glacial Biocenosis--intellectual resources

Some resources to support Surge and The Lay of the Land: Glacial Biocenosis are updated in this post which includes my bibliography/sources, link to a Soundcloud podcast of a museum arts panel discussion on November 17.

“Media anxiety over . . . [political issues in Smithsonian exhibition, The West as America: Reinterpreting Images of the Frontier, 1820-1920} may auger trouble ahead. But considering the potent role of art in ritualizing nationalist myths, it seems that art communities have it in their hands to restore to view the visual evidence of different histories and dissenting meanings and in the process, to revive critical intelligence in the public discussion of culture. . . .”
