Program Description:

Drawing from his award-winning book, Gulf: The Making of an American Sea, University of Florida history professor Jack E. Davis will talk about the role the Gulf of Mexico has played in the course of U.S. history. He is interested in the way people, from pre-Spanish natives to current shoreside residents, have organized their societies and individual lives around nature, and how Gulf nature has been a positive force in human events. Unfortunately, human activities have sometimes led to unintended consequences that have undermined the Gulf’s beneficence.
