In the Americas with David Yetman
Friday, May 4, 2018 - 7:00 PM
Our May monthly meeting of SWNMA will feature David Yetman, writer, host and producer of the series In The Americas with David Yetman. This program features Dr. Yetman talking about and screening his recent episode, Brazil’s Pantanal Wetland: The world’s largest fresh water wetland, to be aired in Season 7.
In the Americas with David Yetman is an Emmy Award-winning television series that presents a new approach to travel and adventure, weaving together the landscapes, culture and history of the Western Hemisphere. The series is based on the premise that each country embodies features that have not received the attention they deserve on the world stage. The series, by multiple Emmy Award-winning producer & director Dan Duncan, along with David Yetman, airs on PBS in the United States and Arte France in France, Germany & Austria. Past programs can be viewed at the website for the series, InTheAmericas.org.
David Yetman is a research social scientist who has been with the Southwest Center since 1992. The Southwest Center is a research unit of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences of the University of Arizona. He received his doctorate in philosophy from the University of Arizona in 1972. Yetman’s research has been primarily directed towards the state of Sonora, its indigenous people, their history, and how they have incorporated native resources into their lives. Yetman received an Emmy Award in 2007 for his documentary television work. He has authored numerous books and is also the host of the PBS series “The Desert Speaks.” The epitome of a "desert rat," Yetman has lived in the Southwest for over 50 years.
The presentation is free and the public is welcome. Light refreshments follow. Our first Friday programs will resume in October.
