As part of the City Museum’s on-going Coffee & Collections series, Richard Simpson will present on the Globalizing Southeast Alaska website on Saturday, March 17th from 10:30-noon. Coffee & Collections is a free event, and coffee will be provided thanks to a generous donation by Heritage Coffee Company.

Globalizing Southeast Alaska is an open website that aims to collect visual artifacts regarding the social, environmental, and historical impact of the multinational cruise ship industry on the landscape of southeast Alaska. This project, part of a larger initiative developed by Geography and Environmental Studies students at UAS, aims to construct a spatial history of cruise ship tourism in Southeast Alaska from 1977-2017 and was funded in part by a Juneau History Grant from the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, City and Borough of Juneau, 2017.
