Willson Center Director's Series: Nick Hunt

The internationally acclaimed travel writer Nick Hunt will take part in a conversation with Nicholas Allen, Professor in Humanities at UGA and director of the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts. The event is part of the Willson Center's Director's Series of conversations, curated by Allen.

Nick Hunt is a freelance writer and storyteller, publishing articles and features in The Guardian, The Economist, New Internationalist, and other publications. Much of his work focuses on the links between culture and ecology. He is the author of four books: Walking the Woods and the Water, Where the Wild Winds Are, The Parakeeting of London, and his latest, Outlandish, which tells the story of four journeys to some of Europe’s “unlikely landscapes” – a patch of arctic tundra in Scotland; primeval forest in Poland and Belarus; Europe’s only true desert in Spain; the grassland steppes of Hungary – that act as portals to faraway parts of the world and to faraway times.

Advance registration for the event, which will be conducted via Zoom webinar, is required and available here.
