Intersectional Feminism in Museums: Panel Discussion

This discussion explores recent exhibitions and museum approaches that challenge mythologies about sexuality, gender, race and power. How are museums responding in light of #MeToo, LGBTQI advocacy, Black and Brown Lives Matter, and other activist movements?

Panelists:
Abby Chen, Head of Contemporary Art/Senior Associate Curator, Asian Art Museum

Lecture: "Solar Fuels: Nature's Approach"

Inaugural Lecture of the Winston Ko Professor in Science Leadership

Join the UC Davis College of Letters and Science in recognizing Distinguished Professor of Chemistry R. David Britt, a leader in the field of bioinorganic spectroscopy, as the first holder of the Winston Ko Professorship in Science Leadership.

Although enormous, mankind's total consumption of energy is dwarfed by nature's global utilization of solar energy by photosynthesis. Professor Britt will discuss how natural photosynthesis carries out the conversion of light energy to chemical energy, and how photosynthesis might be modified to directly produce useful fuels.

Reception to follow. RSVP at ko2019.eventbrite.com.
