Saving the Ocean Collection
Saving the Ocean is not just another doom-and-gloom TV show; it's about people solving problems. The news is grim: overfishing, pollution, coral reef troubles, and on and on. These problems are spread all over the two-thirds of the globe that is ocean. But a far-flung group of unsung heroes - scientists, conservationists, local communities - are hard at work inventing, advocating, and implementing solutions.
The Forgotten Space
The sea is forgotten until disaster strikes. But perhaps the biggest seagoing disaster is the global supply chain, which - maybe in a more fundamental way than financial speculation - leads the world economy to the abyss. This essayistic, political documentary follows container cargo aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to workers, engineers, planners, politicians, an those marginalized by the global transport system. We discover the most sophisticated expression of the belief that the maritime economy, and the sea itself, is somehow obsolete.
The New Oceania
He has given the world a new vision of the Pacific and of New Zealand as a Pacific nation. But New Zealanders are only just waking up to the huge international reputation of novelist Albert Wendt.
The Last Reef
Fly across iridescent tropical reefs. Brush through a cloud of countless jellyfish. Visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see. We think of reefs as exotic, distant places with little connection to our everyday world. Yet each of them is a hotspot of biodiversity, as vital to life on Earth as the rain forests. Just as the Amazon has its secrets, so too do the reefs.
Ocean Literacy means understanding the ocean’s influence on you and your influence on the ocean. There are 7 principles of Ocean Literacy — ideas scientists and educators agree everyone should understand about the ocean.
The Misguided Focus on 1619 as the Beginning of Slavery
The year the first enslaved Africans were brought to Jamestown is drilled into students’ memories, but overemphasizing this date distorts history.
Intra-American Slave Trade Database
The Database tracks records of slave voyages within the Americas – stretching from Boston to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and involving both the Atlantic and Pacific coast. The database is hosted by Slave Voyages, one of the most utilized resources in the digital humanities, which illuminates the ubiquity of the slave trade from the 16th century to the 19th century and is home to thousands of records on slave voyages from Africa to the Americas.
