Discovering the Deep Logic of Earth

with Marcia Bjornerud

Saturday July 20
9:00am PDT  | 12:00pm EDT  | 5:00pm BST  |  6:00pm CEST 
2-hour session

The session is live and you will be sent the RECORDING.

Rocks as verbs? Stones with subtle wisdom? Experiencing Earth with the fourth dimension of Deep Time? Marcia Bjornerud is doing in geology what Tim Ingold has done in anthropology and David Bohm has done in physics: make new levels of embodied meaning available to non-specialists while challenging our reflexive perceptions of the world.

In this two-hour session, Dr. Bjornerud will discuss her forthcoming book, Turning to Stone: Discovering the Subtle Wisdom of Rocks, as well as her current book, Timefulness: How Thinking Like a Geologist Can Help Save the World.


Marcia Bjornerud (she/her/hers) is Walter Schober Professor of Environmental Studies and Professor of Geosciences at Lawrence University. She is a structural geologist whose research focuses on the physics of earthquakes and mountain building. She combines field-based studies of bedrock geology with quantitative models of rock mechanics. She has done research in high arctic Norway (Svalbard) and Canada (Ellesmere Island), as well as mainland Norway, Italy, New Zealand, and the Lake Superior region.  

Bjornerud is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America and has been a Fulbright Senior Scholar at the University of Oslo, Norway and University of Otago, New Zealand.   A contributing writer to The New Yorker, Wired, the Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times, she is also the author of several books for popular audiences — Reading the Rocks: The Autobiography of the Earth;  Timefulness: How Thinking Like a Geologist Can Help Save the World and Geopedia: A Brief Compendium of Geologic Curiosities.  Timefulness was longlisted for the 2019 PEN/E.O.Wilson Prize for Literary Science Writing, and was a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize in Science and Technology.
