Shannon Lecture: Saving a “Prehistoric Horse”

The second in this year's Shannon Lecture series on Beastly Histories from the History Department at Carleton University is by Nigel Rothfels, one of the leading historians in the field, widely respected for his work on cultural politics of zoos, Savages and Beasts: The Birth of the Modern Zoo (2002).  His lecture will examine the “restoration” of the "Przewalski Horse,” looking at the growing interest in rewilding, the re-introduction of extinct species to the landscape.

That's this Friday, 14 November in the Humanities Lecture Theatre, 303 Paterson Hall, from 1:00-2:30 pm.
