Ohio Wesleyan Dives Into Exploration Of “Water In Our World”

2014SNCLogo_hires

DELAWARE, Ohio – “Spot a yellow duck dropped atop the seaweed at the tide line,” author Donovan Hohn states, “ask yourself where it came from, and the next thing you know you’re way out at sea, no land in sight, dog-paddling around in mysteries four miles deep.”

Hohn shares the results of his deep-water detective work in the book, “Moby-Duck: The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea and of the Beachcombers, Oceanographers, Environmentalists and Fools, Including the Author, Who Went in Search of Them.”

Hohn will discuss the book and his exploration of man’s impact on the environment when he presents “The Blind Oceanographer: Lessons from the Hunt for Moby-Duck” at 7 p.m. Sept. 4 in the Benes Rooms of OWU’s Hamilton-Williams Campus Center, 40 Rowland Ave., Delaware.

His visit will kick off Ohio Wesleyan University’s 2014 Sagan National Colloquium, which each year explores a topic of national or international importance through a series of lectures, panel discussions, films, art exhibits, and other events. This theme of this year’s 30th anniversary colloquium is “H2OWU: Water in Our World.”

Hohn’s Sept. 4 presentation will be followed Sept. 9 by an Ohio Wesleyan faculty roundtable about the book and the multiple academic perspectives involved in water studies. Participants will include Amy Butcher, M.F.A., assistant professor of English; David Lever, Ph.D., associate professor of chemistry; and Tom Wolber, Ph.D., associate professor of modern foreign languages.
