Cassie Quigley (Education) and Stephen Quigley (English) will launch their Finnish Nature Studies kiosk in Global Hub. The interactive kiosk plays a short trailer to their film project, "[Un]disciplining Environmental Education" and links audiences to their more recent work incorporating code and computer science education into traditional Finnish nature studies curriculum. Both projects examine how [un]disciplining environmental education can inform environmental policy. Various parts of this research have been funded by the European Studies Center, the University Center for International Studies, Pitt’s Year of Data and Society, and the Grable Foundation.

The film is inspired by the true story of herbalist Jan Mikolasek, who dedicated his life to caring for the sick in spite of the immense obstacles he faced in his private and public life. Born at the turn of the 20th century, Mikolasek wins fame and fortune using unorthodox treatment methods to cure a wide range of diseases. Already a local institution in Czechoslovakia before World War II, the healer gains in reputation and wealth, whether during the Nazi occupation or under the Communist rule. One after the other, every regime will want to use his skills and in return gives him protection. But how high shall be the costs to maintain this status as the tide turns?

Directed by Agnieszka Holland
