To celebrate the Anglo-American ties of University of Minnesota Duluth's Study
Abroad Programme and the Centre for Lifelong Learning at the University of
Birmingham, we are exploring the effects of environment on American and
British culture in a one-day history of science conference. Because both
England and Northern Minnesota have unique environmental conditions and
challenging weather, socio-cultural adaptations and assumptions are strikingly
different, yet also revealing of a shared humanity.

"There's something in the Air: Environment, Sensibility and American and
British Culture" will be held Saturday, 19th March 2005 at the Annex,
Winterbourne Botanic Gardens, 58, Edgbaston Park Road, University of
Birmingham from 10.00am-4.30pm.    The conference website and registration
form is at: www.d.umn.edu/~aroos/airconference

A registration of 25 pounds includes a lunch of both American and British
comfort foods, a number of fascinating talks, as well as a movie screening.
The fee is 15 pounds for students and concessions.

Speakers will include:

1. Dr. Mark Harrison--Director, Wellcome Unit for the History and
Understanding of Medicine; Fellow and Reader, Green College, Oxford
University:

"Climate and constitution: the return of tropical invalids to resorts in
Britain"

2. Dr. Anna Marie Roos--Director, University of Minnesota Duluth's Study in
England Programme, Associate Professor of History, University of Minnesota
Duluth:

"Acids in the Air: Isaac Newton, Bryan Robinson, and the search for life's
breath in the eighteenth century"


3. Dr. Stephen Mosley--Professor of History, University of Birmingham, Selly
Oak Campus, Centre for Life Long Learning

"The Destruction of Daylight: Sun, Smoke, and Health in Britain and the United
States, 1880-1940"

4. Dr. Vladimir Jankovic, Wellcome Research Lecturer in History, University of
Manchester--

"Air and 'The Invention of Exposure' in Britain, ca. 1800"


5. Dr. J.E. Thornes, Reader in Applied Meteorology, Department of Geography,
Earth, and Environmental Sciences, University of Birmingham Edgbaston Campus

"Constable's Meteorological Understanding and his Paintings of Skies"

Please join us for a fascinating day of scholarly discourse, good food, and
cross-cultural insights.  If you have any further questions, please contact
