Anne-Lise François, Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature, UC, Berkeley, will present a lecture entitled “‘In the cowslips peeps I lye’: Rousseau, Clare, Climate Change and Telling the Time of Day” on March 21, 5:30 pm, Smith-Buonanno, Rm. 106. The talk asks what Romantic-period botanical writings can contribute to contemporary phenological study at a time when catastrophic climate change means the dissociation of former synchronies between pollinators and flowering plants.
