Professional Writing Minor Student Michael Montgomery Presents at You Are Here Conference

Michael Montgomery recently presented his work from UWP 121: History of Scientific Writing (taken with Dr. Sarah Perrault in Fall 2017) at Creighton University's annual "You Are Here" conference in Omaha, NE.
His presentation, "The Ganges River and the Science of Place," explored how scientists studying the Ganges have located, described, and related place in their writing, and how their depiction of the physical environment and its inhabitants — human and otherwise — has changed over time. Michael is a sophomore majoring in Marine and Coastal Science and minoring in Professional Writing.
