University of Wyoming Professors Margaret Wilson and Neil Humphrey will present a virtual multimedia program for the fall semester’s installment of the President’s Speaker Series Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 4 p.m.
The presentation, “When Ice Breathes,” will now be only offered as a free virtual performance due to current COVID-19 restrictions with UW’s Phase 4 plan enacted beginning the week of Nov. 16. To view a livestream of the presentation, click here.
Wilson is a professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance, and Humphrey is a professor in the Department of Geology and Geophysics. Their presentation will highlight their collaborative production in vertical dance, Wilson’s work in dance science and performance, and Humphrey’s research on the Greenland ice sheet.
The UW Office of Research and Economic Development, UW Operations, the Department of Theatre and Dance, and the Skip Harper Vertical Dance Fund sponsor the event.
The President’s Speaker Series encourages and honors individual faculty members who have successfully balanced the research, educational and service goals of the university. The series calls attention to individuals who have made important, well-rounded contributions to the university’s standing.
A committee, composed of the series’ previous honorees, nominates candidates, and the selected faculty member is asked to prepare a public presentation on a topic of national interest. The criteria for selection include long-term national recognition for research or creative activity and the ability to communicate with all members of the university community.
