Fabien Cousteau to Speak at NC State on April 6

NRL News - Fri, 2015-03-06 09:15

Ocean explorer and environmentalist Fabien Cousteau is coming to NC State! The grandson of legendary ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau and star of the acclaimed PBS Series, Ocean Adventures, will be delivering the 2015 Harrelson Lecture on Monday, April 6, 2015, at 3 p.m. in the Talley Student Union ballroom. Among Cousteau’s most recent exploits is Mission31, a 31-day underwater stay to research how climate change and pollution are affecting the oceans, which he described in a TEDGlobal talk in October 2014.
Many thanks to the university community for enthusiastically weighing in on Cousteau’s lecture topic via online voting that ended on Friday, February 27.  And the winner is… Oasis In Space: The Great Ocean Adventure

In order to understand future marine discoveries, we must first look back to the origins of modern ocean exploration. Environmental advocate Fabien Cousteau takes audiences on a three-generation journey of contemporary ocean exploration, starting with his grandfather’s first fin steps diving into the “Silent World”, underwater camera housings, and subaquatic habitats. Fabien also shares awe-inspiring stories from his family’s legendary adventures.

The Harrelson Lecture was established in 1961 with a bequest by the late Col. John Harrelson, NC State’s first chancellor and seventh chief executive.  Two-time presidential nominee and U.N. ambassador Adlai Stevenson gave the first Harrelson Lecture on March 7, 1962.  Other prominent lecturers include former President Bill Clinton (2009), civil rights activist Julian Bond (1999) and composer Aaron Copland (1976). The Harrelson Lecture is free and open to the public.

Dr. Russell Flinchum’s Design Classes Study the Martha Scotford Collection

Design Library News - Mon, 2015-02-23 10:42

Professor Russell Flinchum’s two Design classes recently worked with the Special Collections Research Center to study the materials in the Martha Scotford Research and Study Collection on Graphic Design. This collection was featured in a previous blog posted in Spring 2014.

The students in Flinchum’s two Design courses examined a few highlights from the collection, including materials created by Alex Steinweiss during the 1940s and 1950s. Hired by Columbia Records in 1939, Steinweiss was a record album designer who replaced featureless paper covers with poster-like images designed for display.

Another popular item was a series of colorful publications from Mohawk Paper Mills and the Pushpin Group that surveyed historic design styles, including Jugendstil, Paris Deco, Streamline, De Stijl, and Bauhaus.

These items, as well as other original materials relating to architecture, landscape architecture, and design will be featured on March 27, 2015, at our biannual Special Collections “Show and Tell” at the Belk Rotunda at the College of Design from 11 am to 1 pm. Stay tuned for more details about this upcoming event!
