BAR HARBOR — Richard J. Borden has written a philosophical and narrative memoir, “Ecology and Experience,” which will form the basis of a discussion at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m.
The book is a recounting of his life entwined in the intellectual and institutional history of human ecology, a story of life wrapped in a life story. Copies of the book will be available for purchase during the evening.
Borden holds the Rachel Carson Chair in Human Ecology at the College of the Atlantic, where he teaches. An editor and coauthor of numerous books and articles, Borden has been a United States Information Agency academic specialist and consultant in the area of human ecology and has served as an advisor to human ecology programs in China, Russia, Europe, and North and South America.
