The 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act is coming up on Sept. 3, 2014. Northland students teamed up with Northland College, the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center and WRNC to connect the public to wilderness areas.The Wilderness Act is one of the greatest conservation achievements to date. At its passing in 1964, there was only one dissenting vote.

The latest installment in the wilderness radio series features an interview with David Zentner and Mike Link. They talk about known and unknown heroes of wilderness. They also paint a picture of what wilderness is to them. Link retired as the executive director of the Audubon Center of the North Woods in Minnesota. Zentner is recognized for his work in helping to set the foundation for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Voyageurs National Park.

Robin Kimmerer is author of the book, “Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants.” She is a Distinguished Teaching Professor of environmental biology at the State University of New York  and the founder and director of the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment. She spoke at Northland College as part of Cultural Awareness Month events. The public reading was sponsored by the A.D. and Mary Elizabeth Andersen Hulings Distinguished Chair in the Humanities, Northland College Native American & Indigenous Culture Center (NAICC), and the Native American Student Association.

Kimmerer lives in Fabius, New York, where she is a mother, scientist and enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. Her first book, “Gathering Moss,” was awarded the John Burroughs Medal in 2005 for outstanding nature writing.

Published by Milkweed Press in 2013, “Braiding Sweetgrass” takes readers “on a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise,” writes Elizabeth Gilbert, author of “Eat, Pray, Love.”

WRNC aired live a panel discussion on rape culture Wednesday evening. The event was part of several organized by Northland College staff and the Northland College Student Association to recognize Sexual Assault Awareness Month during April.

The panel discussion featured professors Angela Stroud and Cynthia Belmont.

The panel discussion was held in the Sentry Room of the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute.

Cynthia Belmont is an associate professor of English at Northland and Stroud teaches sociology at the college. Stroud instructs on the sociology of gender, human rights and social justice, race and racism, and the sociology of culture. One of her focal points of research deals with how masculinity circulates in American culture. She studies how inequality and privilege can surface when race, class, and gender cross paths.

Professor Belmont devotes her research to poetry writing, publishing, ecofeminist theory and criticism. Her recent research has centered on connections between academic ecological feminism and the new field of queer ecology. She also examines the politics of nature, gender, the body, and sexuality present in literature and film.
