To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Rachel Carson's watershed environmental book Silent Spring, the School of International Service's Global Environmental Politics program will screen the film Vanishing of the Bees, a film that looks at the environmental ramifications and causes of the sudden disappearance of honeybees.
The screening takes place at 12pm in the Abramson Family Founders Room. The event, which is co-sponsored by the
American University Library, is part of the day-long "Pesticides,
Politics ... and Progress?" program. You're encouraged to stick around for the panel discussions, as well as for a screening of A Chemical Reaction at 5pm that evening in SIS 300.
