Student presents fishing stories, research
University of Alaska Fairbanks anthropology student Emilie Springer presents “Community Voices: Tales of Fish and Men in the North Pacific,” a collection of her writing, research and interviews, at 5 p.m. Saturday at Bunnell Street Arts Center. Springer is a graduate student in the doctoral program at UAF department of anthropology and the National Science Foundation’s Resilience and Adaptation program. She has been doing research out of Cordova and focuses on the role and meaning of community in the context of place and local salmon fisheries.
“I am interested in the humanities dimension of environmental sustainability and the possibilities of expressing true identity through fiction, poetry and place,” Springer said. Peter Norton and Sara Jackinsky also assist Springer in reading some of the stories and interviews told to her.
