Thursday, April 6, 2017

Buley Library

Jason W. Smith, assistant professor, Department of Philosophy, presents:

VESSEL OF MEMORY: MYSTIC SEAPORT MUSEUM, THE WHALESHIP CHARLES W. MORGAN, AND THE PRESENCE OF THE AMERICAN MARITIME PAST

Built in 1841, the Charles W. Morgan is the only existing whaleship in the world and the oldest commercial vessel still afloat. But it's more than a ship. It's an icon of a regional and national past cast and recast to meet twentieth and twenty-first century challenges.
