SLSA 2021 satellite event – Reading Accidentals: Scholars, Scientists, and Novelists in Conversation

  • In biology, an “accidental” is an individual animal that has wandered far from its normal range for mysterious reasons, often related to aberrant weather during migration or genetic mutations. Scholars Ursula K. Heise and Jay Clayton, biologist Auriel Fournier, and novelist Susan M. Gaines will discuss the avian and human accidentals—and the concepts of nature and science—in Gaines’s multilayered new science novel, Accidentals. Comments and questions from the audience will be welcome.
