For 200 hundred years, herring have been the foundation of a thriving fishery on Grand Manan Island, Canada. English Professor Alison Hawthorne Deming’s talk celebrates the tradition of harvesting herring while contemplating the challenges of climate change and the unique ways fish and people can live together meaningfully.
Our understanding of human-bison interactions – whether through hunting, consuming, trading, sacrificing, exterminating, or nursing from the brink of extinction – has generally portrayed humans as the central force in the history of this great American mammal. In contrast, Native American Plains hunters situate bison at the center of a web of natural, social, and spiritual connections with the world. María Nieves Zedeño combines traditional knowledge and scientific archaeology to explore how, for millennia, indigenous hunters in North America treated bison as powerful persons and partners who shaped every aspect of human life.
About the Speaker
María Nieves Zedeño is Associate Research Professor in the UA School of Anthropology. She has spent 15 years working with Blackfoot hunters and religious leaders on archaeological projects to uncover the cultural landscape of bison hunting. Her research is woven into contemporary efforts to combine tradition and state-of-art range ecology in the management of Blackfeet tribal bison herds.
The lives of humans and dogs have intertwined for more than 15,000 years. What is it that allows dogs and humans to form such meaningful relationships? To what extent are dog minds similar to and different from our own? Is it silly to think that dogs love us? Anthropologist Evan MacLean highlights surprising new discoveries about the canine mind, our remarkable interspecies connection, and what studying dogs may teach us about our own species.
