LARCP is a partner in the K-State Prairie Studies Initiative that brings disciplines in the arts and sciences together to explore cultural and ecological dimensions of the prairie, understand challenges to sustaining grassland ecosystems, and envision the future of these important landscapes. The public kickoff for the initiative is a March 11 screening of a segment of nature photographer Michael Forsberg's "Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild" series, 6-8 p.m. in 101 Bluemont Hall. The screening, themed "Water", will be followed by discussion with Tim Keane, LARCP, and Elizabeth Dodd, university distinguished professor of English, writer and poet. See Katie Kingery-Page or Stephanie Rolley if you would like more information about the Prairie Studies Intiative and read here.
