This event has expired and is here for your information.

August 12, 2021 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Master Lecturer Steven Noll is a one-of-a-kind teacher, with an unbridled enthusiasm for history and a passion for helping students find their way at the University of Florida. He joined the University of Florida Department of History in 1992 and teaches both American History survey courses as well as courses on the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, the history of disability in America and Florida history. Dr. Noll is also the lead scholar for the Florida Humanities and the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street Traveling Exhibition, which brought the Water/Ways exhibition to the state of Florida.

In this program, the energetic Dr. Noll will explore Florida’s long and difficult relationship with water, its attempts to turn land into water and water into land, and the contentious issues involving the Everglades, the Ocklawaha River, political battles with Alabama and Georgia, and the potential impact of sea-level rise.

This program is free and open to the public. Dr. Noll will deliver his presentation by Zoom and guests may watch from home or join us for a special live screening of the program at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum, where the galleries, including the Smithsonian Water/Ways exhibit, will be open for after hours viewing from 5 p.m. to the end of the program at 8:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
