The Sky Has No Borders: Perspectives on Astronomical Knowledge from Canada, Mexico and the United States: 2024 Reddin Symposium in Canadian Studies
February 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
The April 8, 2024, Total Solar Eclipse will stretch across North America, with the path of totality crossing Mexico, the USA, and Canada. Eclipse-watching has a rich cultural and scientific history that stretches back thousands of years to many pre-contact North American cultures and continues to inspire imaginations down to the present day.
In conjunction with the ‘Eclipsing History’ podcast, BGSU’s Departments of History and of Physics and Astronomy will host a round table of experts exploring the many ways humans interact with astronomy.
This Symposium will feature Dr. Randall Rosenfeld, National Archivist of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada as keynote speaker.
Join Bowling Green State University for an evening of discussion with scholars from archaeology, astronomy, and the history of science about the many ways people experience the night sky – past and present.
This event is free and open to the public and will be held at the Wood County District Library.
The ‘Eclipsing History’ podcast was funded in part by an Ohio Humanities Ignite grant.
