DCIS Lecture Series - Ahab's Rolling Sea: Tracing Our Perceptions of the Ocean through Moby-Dick
The Delaware County Institute of Science (DCIS) presents author and illustrator Dr. Richard King as its November speaker for the DCIS 2020-2021 Lecture Series.

Richard J. King, a visiting professor at the Sea Education Association in Woods Hole, MA, who grew up in Lower Merion, sails (virtually) into the Delaware County Institute of Science Speaker Series to tell the story of Ahab’s Rolling Sea: A Natural History of Moby-Dick. This book of popular, interdisciplinary scholarship has been lauded by both the journals Science and Nature as well as by humanities reviewers in the American Scholar and the Times Literary Supplement. For this talk, you absolutely do NOT need to have read the novel. King, an entertaining speaker, will present about how we may use Melville’s masterpiece as a benchmark to shed light on our own current knowledge of marine biology and oceanography—as well as how we perceive and steward the ocean today.
