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.
Venue: Room G35 (Senate House, Ground Floor)
Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
