Conversation with Jack Davis: The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea
This talk will explore the environmental history of the river, Lake Okeechobee, and the Gulf of Mexico while emphasizing how humans have shaped the waterways and how the waterways shaped human culture, economy, politics, and society over the last several thousand years.
Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
