WorldCanvass guests will join host Joan Kjaer to discuss the controversial method of energy production known as fracking and its impact on the environment, social dynamics, and the economy. We’ll also explore through music, photography, and literature ways in which artists have documented transitions and grappled with the drumbeat of change.

As an only child, getting my mother to be okay with my going to school at the University of Iowa which is only three and a half hours away was a task itself. So when I first told my mom I was thinking about studying abroad in Europe, a completely different continent, she wasn’t so happy with the idea. It took a lot of convincing but eventually she came around to the idea that this would be an amazing experience that I would be able to talk about for a lifetime.
