November 5, 2014:
Bryan McGovern-Wilson delivered an engaging lecture about his complex, multi-year projects investigating obscure forms of glass, including Trinitite—glass formed from the detonation of the atomic bomb at the Trinity nuclear test site in New Mexico. He discussed issues of geological time scale in relation to human time scale and how his projects have sprung from ruminations therein. Bryan’s lecture was followed by a demonstration in the Glass Lab, in which he encased samples of Trinite in glass obelisk forms. This lecture was part of the Wisconsin Ideas in Education Series, presented by the Early Career Faculty of the School of Education at UW-Madison, with support from the Wisconsin Center for Education Research.
