GRAVITY'S CHILDREN: Observations and Anecdotes from a History of Motion

An act of intellectual tourism, “Gravity’s Children,” based on a work in progress of the same title, is a romp through history looking for stories about motion and sense of place. The talk includes a virtual fist fight between Diogenes and Zeno, a dancing skeleton, a view of the Andes as seen by Quecha speakers, and a briefly sketched conception of narrative as landscape with applications for teaching critical thinking.

Brian Clark is a novelist, poet and musician. He taught literature and humanities for several years and is now a writer and web master for the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences at WSU.
