History in the Galapagos Islands Date: 2013-06-06 13:23 From: Robert Kenyon <Robert.Kenyon@sas.ac.uk> The Institute for the Study of the Americas cordially invites you to attend the following events. I would be most grateful if you could circulate this event information to colleagues or mailing lists members who may wish to attend. Wednesday 19 June, 17:30 - 19:30 From Charles Darwin to Lonesome George: Writing the New Animal History in the Galapagos Islands Nicola Foote (Associate Professor, Latin American and Caribbean Histoy, Florida Gulf Coast University) Chair: Linda Newson (Director, ISA) The Galapagos Islands are famous for their iconic wildlife. Yet the critical examination of this wildlife has been left overwhelmingly to scientists – to date, there have been no studies by humanities or social science scholars that engage with either the representation or realities of Galapagos fauna. As a result, some of Latin America’s most famous animals have been left out of the emerging field of Latin American animal studies.This paper seeks to begin to fill this gap.
