Set sail on a nautical adventure! Presented by Stacy Davidson.

Embark on a whimsical journey through magical marine realms with Jules Verne’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

Climb aboard “The Nautilus,” an unusual submarine that travels to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, squeezes past the South Pole’s ice formations and narrowly avoids a school of giant squid. 

Often called the first science fiction novel, Stacy Davidson, Professor of History, unpacks the enchanting narrative that keeps inspiring scientists, storytellers and adventure-seekers around the world.
