A River Semester

November 22nd, 2020

Reporting live from the Mississippi River, travelers question how transforming the act of sensing might remake social, political and environmental relations?


In this archived recording, live streamed from the Upper Mississippi River during The Shape of a Practice, travelers explore the resilience of human and natural communities that inhabit the river and its watershed, as well as the impacts and harms caused by climate change, settler colonialism, racial injustices, and engineering. Led by Joe Underhill, participants include Linda Buturian, Margot Higgins, Jason Lukasik, Michelle Garvey, Stuart Deets, and students from Augsburg University and the Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs (HECUA).
