BDN Reports on UMaine Philosophy Professor’s Adventure on High Seas

The Bangor Daily News featured a story on University of Maine associate philosophy professor Kirsten Jacobson’s time spent sailing around the world. Jacobson, who became fascinated with an adventure on the high seas after seeing the movie “Master and Commander” 10 years ago, is spending half of her sabbatical year living and working on the tall ship Picton Castle. Jacobson and her 40 shipmates have visited places such as Mangareva in French Polynesia, the Galapagos Islands and Panama, but have spent most of their time navigating the Pacific Ocean with no land in sight.
