Coastal Studies Center

Recent Projects

The Coastal Studies Center seeks to support, encourage, and inspire research and creative projects broadly related to coastal studies undertaken by Bowdoin students and faculty. Beyond it's mission to support Bowdoin academic courses, research, or creative projects that study the natural world at the Thalheimer property, the Coastal Studies Center seeks to foster interactions and collaborative projects with other broadly similar entities such as colleges, universities, field stations, and museums. In this context, the Coastal Studies Center seeks to foster limited use of its facilities by visiting researchers, scholars, small academic courses and small academic conferences focusing on topics either broadly related to coastal studies or that studies the natural world at the Thalheimer property. The following list catalogues recent visiting users and researchers of the Coastal Studies Center facilities.
