Why should we work towards a Great Lakes Commons and how ?
On October 9th, members of the UWM 21st Century Trandisciplinary Challenge Seminar in language went on a journey out into the water on the UWM Freshwater research vessel, the Neeskay. The conversation covered why philosophers and scientists should listen to the water.

Our group believes thinkers from all walks of life and all ways of thinking should work towards a commons by listening to the water and experiencing the water apart from the land, on her own terms. Here are our reactions to an attempt to be scholars on the water and with the water, not just scholars who study the object called "water."

Members included: Marcus Bullock (English, emeritus), Nicholas Fleischer (Linguistics), Sabine Heuer (Communication Sciences and Disorders), Michael Liston (Philosophy), Margaret Noodin (English; American Indian Studies), Bernard Perley (Anthropology), Anne Pycha (Linguistics), Amanda Schoofs (Music), Robert Schwartz (Philosophy), Jae Yung Song (Communication Sciences and Disorders; Linguistics). The images with this story is the result of that contemplation.
