Nature may be ubiquitous—trees in forests, shrubbery outside houses, the plant on your desk. But this year, some folks at Boise State decided to look beyond the foliage. They developed a series called Interdisciplinary Explorations: The Idea of Nature that examines how thoughts about nature are expressed in a variety of disciplines—including literature, music, philosophy and art.
The series wraps up today from 6-7 p.m. in the Boise State Student Union Building Simplot Ballroom. You can listen to Kevin Hutchings, University of Northern British Columbia's research chair in literature, culture and environmental studies, talk about Romanticism, Blake and the Politics of Nature. It won't cost you a cent, so you can save your money for the reception, where there's a cash bar and you can snack on appetizers.
