OSU lectures to focus on wildfire


Starting this month, Oregon State University will host a remote lecture series featuring speakers who will discuss what living with wildfire looks like in practice, both as individuals and as communities.
“Lookout: Envisioning Futures with Wildfire” is a free 11-week series, starting Jan. 4, that includes lectures by artists, firefighters, biologists and more.
The Zoom series begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 4, with “Art on Fire” by Bryan David Griffith and Julie Comnick, and continues with lectures every Tuesday through March 15.
It is free and open to everyone, but registration is required. Links to register are listed on the “Lookout” website at https://bit.ly/3pHP78Y.
Prominent speakers include Margo Robbins, co-founder and executive director of the Cultural Fire Management Council, who will discuss “Climate Change and Native Knowledge” on Jan. 18; and Jaime Love, whose 2021 book “Breathing Fire” follows the lives of incarcerated women fighting fires in California, on Feb. 1.
