Keynote: The American Naturalists Tradition: The Storyteller’s Journey Through Literature and Science
Walking a path first blazed by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Aldo Leopold and Rachel Carson; Brian “Fox” Ellis travels in the tradition of the American Naturalists. The Transcendentalists were the first truly American movement in literature that broke from European traditions. Fox follows in these footsteps. He promises to tune our ears to the quiet whispers of wildflowers, to teach us the songs of wind and wave, to share the stories of the land. (This was originally a keynote address for the Illinois State Teachers of English Conference, and has since been presented at several science teacher and environmental education conferences.)
