Citizen Science Program
Sunday, January 13, 2019 – Friday, January 25, 2019
Inspired by stories from places like Flint, Michigan, and Hoosick Falls, New York, the 2019 Citizen Science program will tackle urgent, present-day questions related to water. We will explore the properties of water, as well as how these properties influence the contamination (and decontamination) of drinking water. We will also consider the extent to which problems of contamination are not purely scientific in nature: Where and how does politics enter the picture? In what ways are social, historical, and political factors at work even when we think we are engaged in “objective” science?

Lecture by Charles Fishman
Tuesday, January 22, 2019
Water never really disappears—it just gets recycled and reused. However, water shortages can occur when and where water is used at a rate faster than it can be naturally cleaned. Manmade processes exist to clean water, but according to Fishman, cleaning it too much can make it dangerous to consume. That’s why, according to the author, “the era of easy water is over.”
