American composer Richard Charles Rodgers (1902 – 1979) was one of the most significant composers of the 20th century whose work significantly impacted popular music. The first creative to win an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards), he wrote or co-wrote 43 Broadway musicals and over 900 songs.

Rogers is best known for his songwriting partnerships with the lyricists Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s the Rogers & Hart duo wrote Pal Joey, A Connecticut Yankee, On Your Toes and Babes in Arms. In the 1940s and 1950s Rogers & Hammerstein created Oklahoma!, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music. Rogers & Hammerstein are celebrated for bringing the Broadway musical to a new maturity.
With the assistance of recordings and video, Mollie Glazer takes the class through the prodigious work of Richard Rogers and shows how the Queens-born composer reshaped American music.

Lecture: Dr. Jen Karberg, Nantucket's Salt Marshes and Coastal Resilience @ Nantucket Atheneum

Nantucket is at the forefront of climate change and projected impacts from sea level rise. But the island is fortunate to benefit from local research and innovation on ways to adapt to these changes. The natural beauty and resources that draw people to Nantucket are also some of the things that will help protect the island from climate change impacts.
This talk explores the ecological function and benefits of Nantucket’s natural coastal buffers, particularly salt marshes and coastal dunes. Learn about local research and restoration aimed at improving salt marsh function and the role that salt marshes play in the island’s coastal resilience.

Dr Jen Karberg is the Research Program Supervisor for the Nantucket Conservation Foundation. She researches fresh and salt water wetland ecology and restoration, climate change and coastal resiliency, rare plant ecology and disturbance ecology. Jen studied plant ecology at the University of Michigan as an undergrad and then obtained advanced degrees from Michigan Technological University in wetland ecology and rare species conservation genetics. On island for 12 years , Jen has co-chaired the Nantucket Biodiversity Initiative Research Conference, served on the Nantucket Conservation Commission, and various boards of the Society of Wetland Scientists. She currently represents NCF on the Nantucket Coastal Resilience Advisory Committee and is Chair of the Women in Wetland’s section of the Society of Wetland Scientists.

When you are ready to print*, Nantucket Atheneum charges $0.10 per gram, including rafts and supports, for all 3D printed objects – so most small objects cost $1 – $2.

* No illegal or dangerous objects will be approved for printing.
