Expert shares tales from the Antarctic at UW Bothell

After nearly a decade of living and working in the Antarctic -- sometimes on the ice itself -- Jason Anthony wrote the first ethnography of a continent with no people: “Hoosh: Roast Penguin, Scurvy Day, and Other Stories of Antarctic Cuisine.

UW Bothell will host Anthony Monday, April 15 through Wednesday, April 17.

Anthony will visit the UW Bothell campus to talk about work, life and food at the bottom of the world.

The adventurer worked for a decade in the frozen Antarctic, the most remote environment on earth – where the tallest plant is lichen and the largest land animal is a flightless midge. If you’ve ever wondered how people survive in an environment of solid ice, or how what types of job opportunities are waiting in the Antarctic, Anthony comes with stories of the Antarctic, past and present.
