Lecture: Alexander von Humboldt: Polymath of His Time with Tom Lovejoy

Lecture: Alexander von Humboldt: Polymath of His Time with Tom Lovejoy Online

Join Tom Lovejoy, professor of environmental science at George Mason University, for the fifth lecture in a six-part series that examines the profound impact of Alexander von Humboldt, a renowned Prussian naturalist and explorer and one of the most influential figures of the nineteenth century. This thought-provoking online lecture is presented in conjunction with SAAM’s landmark exhibition Alexander von Humboldt and the United States: Art, Nature, and Culture that examines how Humboldt’s ideas shaped American perceptions of nature and the way American cultural identity became grounded in our relationship with the environment.
