Deepening Histories of Private Conservation, Science, and Patrimony in Patagonia

Friday, April 11, 2014 at 3:00pm to 4:30pm

ILR Conference Center, 225

This talk examines the historical parameters for land protection as natural history research shited towards considering the contingencies of location. Using examples from Chile and Argentina, Emily Wakild argues that analyzing science in place captures the curiosity, wonderment, and exhilaration of discovery while also exposing its brutal contingencies, including cultural difference, inequality, and competing natural interests.
