Graduate Students are welcome to a special lunch event with this weekâs Teale speaker Dr. Liam Heneghan, author of Beasts at Bedtime, Environmental Wisdom in Children's Literature.
In Beasts at Bedtime, Liam Heneghan examines the environmental underpinnings of childrenâs stories. From Beatrix Potter to Harry Potter, Heneghan unearths the universal insights into our inextricable relationship with nature that underlie so many classic childrenâs stories. Some of the largest environmental challenges in coming yearsâfrom climate instability, the extinction crisis, freshwater depletion, and deforestationâare likely to become even more severe as this generation of children grows up. Though todayâs young readers will bear the brunt of these environmental calamities, they will also be able to contribute to environmental solutions if prepared properly. Heneghan shows how the nature curriculum is already embedded in bedtime stories, from the earliest board books like The Rainbow Fish to contemporary young adult classics like The Hunger Games.
Liam Heneghan is an ecosystem ecologist, Professor, and Co-Director of DePaul Universityâs Institute for Nature and Children. He is a Dubliner, an occasional poet, a tin whistle player, and a father of two grown children to whom he read every night of their early years.
The Edwin Way Teale Lecture Series brings leading scholars and scientists to the University of Connecticut to present public lectures on nature and the environment. The lectures are open to the public and do not require registration.
