RISING: Perspectives of Change on the North Carolina Coast

Community Conversation on Coastal Change at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center | August 14

RISING is a collaborative research project that uses photography and oral history to better understand coastal communities’ beliefs and understandings regarding climate change, and is featured in the Coastal Food Issue (Spring 2018) of Southern Cultures. RISING includes photographs by Baxter Miller, and oral histories collected by Ryan Stancil and Barbara Garrity-Blake.

Join us at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center for a conversation about day-to-day observations of coastal change and how we might prepare for a more resilient tomorrow. Southern Cultures is proud to support this event, which is free and open to the public. Please RSVP.

This project is made possible by a Community Collaborative Research Grant, a program of North Carolina Sea Grant in partnership with the William R. Kenan Jr. Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science at NC State University. Special thanks to our co-sponsors, Food For All, the Coastal Resilience Center, and the Department of American Studies.
