Title: The First Earth Day Manifesto at Indiana University
Department: Anthropology
Course Description: At approximately 9:30 am on April 22, 1970, Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson made a stop at IU’s Dunn Meadow as he crisscrossed the country promoting what would become the nation’s first Earth Day. A 30-minute recording available at IU’s Digital Library provides an invaluable glimpse into Nelson’s manifesto—a profound reflection on the causes, consequences, and potential solutions to environmental and social predicaments challenging American public policies and environmentalism of the day. Way ahead of its time, Nelson’s manifesto foregrounds the roots of environmental problems in culture and ethics, centering attention on environmental justice and accountability, and the ethics of indigenous land management. We will listen to and reflect on the scope of Nelson’s manifesto in light of our current understanding of the state of the environment, examining the causes and responses to confront ever more complex social-environmental problems in the United States and globally.

Title: BloomingTown and Barber’s Sea Island White Flint Corn
Department: IU Libraries-Wylie House Museum
Course Description: BloomingTown is a new rotating living exhibit at the Wylie House Museum, the home of IU’s first president. This exhibit highlights Larry Barber, a long-time Bloomington resident, and the Sea Island White Flint corn that he has been growing for many years, an heirloom variety of corn with a deep history on the East Coast. This corn, and the exhibit series, tells the story of heirloom growers in Bloomington and the importance of heirloom cultivars. Additionally, we will discuss the history of the gardens on the Wylie Museum property and the changes in their usage since the house was built in 1835.
