      Science Pub Corvallis - June 3, 2019

      WATER, CULTURE AND SOCIETY:Conflicts and cooperation from the Columbia River to the Nile Speakers:Hassan LatifEgyptologist and former curator at the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities Aaron WolfGeography professor at OSU College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences Water connects history, geography and culture, sometimes in surprising ways. This special Science Pub Corvallis will explore the impacts of dams and development in two places — Egypt and the Pacific Northwest. In both regions, communities and cultural treasures were threatened, and in some cases destroyed, by waters rising behind dams that were built to generate electricity, reduce downstream flooding and irrigate crops. Two speakers — Hassan Latif from Cairo, Egypt, and Aaron Wolf of Oregon State University — will share their deep knowledge of these water management projects and ongoing efforts to navigate difficult issues across cultural and political boundaries. For more info visit Science Pub Night.  This edition of Science Pub is produced in partnership with the OSU Alumni Association. Science Pub is sponsored by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, the Downtown Corvallis Association and Terra magazine at Oregon State University.
