Professor Peter Moe Publishes Book

January 9th, 2021 § 0

Dr Peter Moe’s book Touching This Leviathan asks how we might come to know the unknowable––in this case, whales, animals so large yet so elusive, revealing just a sliver of back, a glimpse of a fluke, or a split-second breach before diving away. Drawing on biology, theology, local history, literary criticism, environmental studies, and composition theory, Moe offers a deep dive into the alluring and impalpable mysteries of Earth’s largest mammal.

Touching This Leviathan is available for preorder with Oregon State University Press; use the discount code SP21 for 25% off.
