Penn State Berks welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winner

September 22, 2004

Environmental conservationist Edward O. Wilson will speak at Penn State Berks at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. His lecture is part of the 2004-2005 College Lecture Series presented by Penn State Berks-Lehigh Valley College.

In 2001, Wilson was hailed as one of America's Most Influential People by Time Magazine. In his career, Wilson has won two Pulitzer Prizes, one Craaford Prize (the highest award given in the field of ecology), and countless other honors. He is the founder of the field of sociobiology and has written numerous best-selling books on the sciences. In his eighth decade, Wilson remains one of the most respected and outspoken advocates of environmental conservation. Wilson's most recent work, "The Future of Life," is the culmination of his many years in the field of conservation. Wilson's lectures combine detailed academic study with a palatable, common sensibility. His ability to translate enormous, complex concepts into easily digestible narrative is unmatched in this field.

The lecture is free to the public. For more information, call the Berks campus at (610) 396-6068.
