May SotB: Science, Poetry, and Baseball

Tuesday, May 1st | 6:30 PM-8:00 PM

Have you ever pondered the role that geology plays in baseball, from origins of the mud that's rubbed on each ball to the geological settings of famous ballparks? Or maybe you have been inspired by the natural world to create or appreciate works of artistic expression. Both of these represent unique intersections of science with other aspects of our creative, recreational, and everyday lives.

Please join us for our next Science on the Bayou at The Jefferson Street Pub on Tuesday, May 1st, as we explore these interesting connections of science, poetry, and ... baseball!

"The Geology of Baseball." Taylor Dorn, Masters Candidate, UL Lafayette School of Geosciences

"Science & Art: Biology through the poetic lens," Graduate students from the UL Lafayette Biology Dept. (Paige Byerly, Cate Craig, Scott Jones, Erik Yando), Graduate students from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Dept. of English (Patti Pangborn, Kimberly Southwick-Thompson) and a UL Lafayette Dept. of English Graduate (Sara Beth Ferguson)

As always, please come early to share a happy hour beverage with your fellow SotB-ers, and stick around for the event beginning at 7pm. We hope to see you there!
