The UCSB Library is pleased to present the exhibition Eunice Foote to UCSB: A Story of Women, Science and Climate Change. Eunice Foote was an early American feminist, inventor, and ground-breaking scientist. Despite these achievements, few have heard of Foote. This UCSB Library exhibition will draw on research to illustrate Foote’s contributions to climate science and feminism and connect her legacy to the contributions of faculty at UCSB who study climate change.

To celebrate the opening of this exhibition, we invite you to attend a special panel discussion and reception. The panel will include UCSB women faculty whose research is related to climate science, followed by a reception and open tours in the gallery with the exhibition curators. 

Curated by John Perlin, Emily Corb, and Alex Regan, with special thanks to Dr. David Lea and Dr. Kelly Caylor.

This exhibition and event is co-sponsored with the Bren School for Environmental Science & Management, the Chancellor's Campus Sustainability Committee, Division of Student Affairs, Environmental Studies, Feminist Studies, the Institute for Energy Efficiency, UCSB Arts & Lectures' Thematic Learning Initiative, and the UCSB Environmental and Climate Justice Studies Hub.
