An open performance and lecture with arts and music, performed by Prof. Stephen B. Scharper (percussion, poetry reading) and composed by and performed by Dr. Nina Soyfer (piano, voice), with Q and A at the end, and lecture by both performers.
Dr. Scharper’s research and teaching are in the areas of environmental ethics, worldviews and ecology, liberation theology, as well as nature and the city.
