Welcome to the Fire and Ice online exhibit where you will find Ebooks, videos, and lectures compiled in celebration of Earth Month.
Fire and Ice is a conceptual online exhibit bringing together two of Earth’s transformative elements. Originally designed as a physical display at ASU Library, this online exhibit explores climate change and sustainability through themes of fire and ice. Explore fiction and nonfiction ebooks, poetry, and multimedia activities. Topics include fire (both its natural role and the exacerbated devastation linked to human activity), water (in oceans and desert riparian environments), desert ecosystems, glaciers, the polar ice caps, extinction events, desert plants and animals, the culture of the Southwest, and more. Fire and Ice is curated by Wes Edens and Rene Tanner with input from the ASU Library and campus community, in recognition and celebration of Earth Month 2020. Wes and Rene especially thank Emily Pattni, Curation Specialist at ASU Library, for her kind assistance.
