Biodiversity and Its Histories Workshop

April 24, 9:00 am - April 25, 6:00 pm

Columbia Alumni Center, 622 West 113th Street and New York Botanical Garden

Participation by permission only. Please e-mail dcoen@barnard.edu.

This workshop will further explore several of the principal themes discussed in The New York Botanical Garden’s March 9th Symposium Threshold: Biodiversity, Climate, and Humanity at a Crossroads, through a further historical examination of the concept of biodiversity. Experts from around the world will travel to the Garden in order to participate in a collective endeavor to reconstruct the complex past as well as the competing measures and conflicting prescriptions for the preservation of biodiversity, from the eighteenth century to the present. In doing so, Biodiversity and its Histories aims to provide a forum for the discussion of one of the most contentious and pressing issues in the academy today.

This event is sponsored by The Center for Science and Society and the New York Botanical Garden and is a part of the Environmental Science and Humanities research cluster.
