Melody Jue

SCUBA diver and English Professor Melody Jue will discuss her fieldwork in Mexico to visit underwater caverns and the underwater sculptures of Jason deCaires Taylor. Jue will explain what makes underwater museums such interesting places and how the ocean challenges the way we normally think about language and media. Drawing on her new book Wild Blue Media: Thinking Through Seawater, Jue will talk about the importance of bringing the humanities into conversation with the ocean sciences.
