Live streaming of the Nobel Conference on the Global Ocean at Gustavus! More about the program here. I’m hoping they will also add the videos of the talks to an online archive, since I won’t be able to go to or stream all of them. The Nobel conference has been going on at Gustavus for 48 years, and, as far as I can tell from this one, seems to be more of a “trickle down” conference rather than a full blown academic conference. Think Ted Talks or something along those lines, bringing the general public up to speed re: the state of the field. Great role for a liberal arts college like Gustavus, I think.
Gosh, lots going on this week– will try to get around to posting about the Royal Visit soon, as well as the upcoming Scandinavian Crime Fiction Conference.
