Event Details

DukeSNAP (Stories of Nature and People) is a student-led science communication group, hoping to increase the awareness that great science needs even greater communication skills.

Their Fall Symposium includes several awesome speakers, an opportunity to see an exclusive screening of ‘Red Wolf Revival,’ and an opportunity to take part in a hands-on, full-day workshop with Duke Forest.

  • 5:00-5:45 p.m. – The Duke Initiative for Science & Society’s Jory Weintraub & Abby Olena will be leading an interactive talk, showing us how to tackle sensitive topics in science communication.
  • 6:00-6:45 p.m. – Jason Houston, photojournalist and documentary photographer, has spent over 20 years photographing community, culture, and how we live on the planet for editorial and NGO clients. His engaged, long-term approach to complex issues captures informed, authentic narratives that help educate the public and guide a balance of social and environmental change. Jason is a fellow in the International League of Conservation Photographers and has lectured and taught on doing cause-driven photography at Anderson Ranch, Telluride Photo Festival, Harvard, Yale, Duke, Williams College, The Nevada Museum of Art, San Francisco Art Institute, Mountainfilm, Wild & Scenic Film Festival, Colorado Photographic Arts Center, and many more. For 8 years also worked as the photography editor for Orion magazine.

  • 8:00-8:30 – Red Wolf Revival! An exclusive screening for the Durham and Duke community! The Nestbox Collective-produced short movie aims to makes us think about re-introduction programs. Read more about it here!
