Bethany Garretson, Paul Smith’s College Professor of Environment and Society, will present The Power of Storytelling at the next Clarkson University Science Café on Wednesday, October 6 at 7:15 pm.
Stories are powerful tools when it comes to social change. A direct line between two individuals, stories break down barriers and build empathy. Professor Bethany Garretson (Environment & Society, Paul Smith’s College) has been listening to, collecting and writing stories since she was a young child. In 2016, she raised funds to begin a storytelling fellowship at Paul Smith’s College. Garretson will talk about her writing and storytelling projects, which have spanned the globe — from villages in Nepal to the rural countryside of central New York.
Traditionally, Science Cafés have brought together local university and college professors and townspeople in relaxed, informal settings, such as coffeehouses and pubs. For the health and safety of all, we will continue with a virtual platform (ZOOM) for the fall 2021 talks. The speaker will make a short presentation about a topic in his or her field and, as always, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
Not familiar with virtual event participation? We will use ZOOM which allows participants to connect with or without ZOOM installed on your device. Use the following link to access the Zoom Help Center, which offers information, instructions and assistance to new Zoom users. https://support.zoom.us
