Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D., is an ecologist, author, and cancer survivor and an internationally recognized authority on the environmental links to cancer and human health. Her acclaimed book, Living Downstream: An Ecologist’s Personal Investigation of Cancer and the Environment presents her research on, and personal experience with, environmental pollution and cancer. Originally published in 1997, with a second edition in 2010, it has been adapted into a documentary. She has also written Having Faith: An Ecologist’s Journey to Motherhood and recently, Raising Elijah: Protecting Our Children in an Age of Environmental Crisis.

In March 2013, Steingraber was arrested along with other protesters for demonstrating against the Inergy natural gas facility in upstate New York, where she lives, to protest “the industrialization of the Finger Lakes”. Heralded as “the new Rachel Carson,” she speaks extensively and is a columnist for Orion magazine.

Trevor Paglen with Rebecca Solnit

This event was part of the Lannan In Pursuit of Cultural Freedom series.

Trevor Paglen is a photographer whose work deliberately blurs the lines between science, contemporary art, journalism, and other disciplines to construct unfamiliar yet meticulously researched ways to see and interpret the world around us. His subjects include experimental geography, state secrecy, military symbology, and visuality. He is the author of Invisible: Covert Operations and Classified Landscapes (co-authored by Rebecca Solnit); Torture Taxi: On the Trail of the CIA’s Rendition Flights; and Blank Spots on the Map: The Dark Geography of the Pentagon’s Secret World, among other books. His most recent work, The Last Pictures, is a meditation on the intersections of Deep Time (the concept of geologic time), politics, and art. Paglen’s visual work has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Tate Modern; the Walker Art Center; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among other institutions.
