The Marine Sublime:Where Art and Science Come Together—In Nature and in the Library
Please join us on Wednesday, November 2 at 4:00 p.m. for the first event curated by the USC Libraries’ inaugural Discovery Fellow, Margaret Wertheim.

McDougall, the co-editor of Science is Fiction: The Films of Jean Painlevé, organized the first retrospective of the French director’s pioneering underwater films in the United States.
The program will include clips from and discussion of Proteus and selected Painlevé works, a viewing of rare editions of Ernst Haeckel’s writings and illustrations from the libraries’ special collections, and an introduction by a USC marine biologist.
