Students in Kelley Calvert’s English for Academic & Professional Purposes course, “Focus on Sustainability,” visited Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station on September 18th, 2012. Students toured the marine station, learning about its history as well as Monterey Bay’s transformation from industrial wasteland to marine sanctuary. Following the tour, marine biologist and writer Dr. Stephen Palumbi spoke to the class about his book Death and Life of Monterey Bay: A Story of Revival.
The class had the privilege of being joined by Chinese and Japanese interpreters from Professor Laura Burian’s translation and interpretation course. The interpreters provided simultaneous interpretation of the tour, Palumbi’s lecture, and the Q & A session following.
