Professor Zook Presents in Lodz, Poland
Professor Douglas Zook will be presenting a series of invited lectures on global ecology for students, faculty, and the public in Lodz (pronounced Wutch), Poland, the country’s third largest city. The visit was arranged through the invitation of a scientist-colleague at Lodz University, Izabella Kalucka. The visit is also part of a special Visiting Scholar award Professor Zook received from the Mayor of Lodz, Hanna Znadowska.
Additionally, Professor Douglas Zook was invited to showcase new images from his Earth Gazes Back photographic reflection series early this summer at the Collegium Maius in Krokow, Poland. Built in the 14th century, the Collegium Maius was the first structure of Krakow’s historic Jagiellonian University. Among its famous graduates is the renowned astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus.
Professor Zook’s exhibit will be housed in the celler of the Collegium Maius which has been converted to a gallery and café. Professor Zook’s exhibit is part of the University’s 650th anniversary celebration. During the month-long exhibit, Professor Zook will present periodic multimedia-based lectures to the public on his art and its linkages to earth science and education.
