The 7th installment of our International Primatology Lecture Series features an icon who needs no introduction. We are honored to be able to present esteemed primatologist, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and Roots & Shoots, UN Messenger of Peace, Dr. Jane Goodall.
Hear from a world-renowned naturalist, conservationist, activist and humanist in a lecture titled Hope through Action. Following her groundbreaking study of the chimpanzees of Gombe, learn why Dr. Goodall's focus turned away from Gombe in order to advocate for the protection of all species. During the lecture, Dr. Goodall will share her five main reasons for hope in the world.
This event comes after the release of Dr. Goodall's new book, the Book of Hope, coauthored with Douglas Abrams. The book follows an on-and-off dialogue between the two authors discussing Dr. Goodall's reasons for hope for our collective future. Check that out for more about her saga to save the planet and all of us within it.
Come join us in this special lecture, and to learn more about Dr. Goodall, her activism, and her reasons for hope, visit the website of the Jane Goodall Institute.
LiveStream on the CICASP YouTube Channel
In this lecture series, we explore various origin stories as told by famed members of our primatology comunity. All lectures are held in a private Zoom community and live streamed to our CICASP YouTube Channel.
Unlike most academic lectures, which are usually focused on testing scientific hypotheses, this series is designed to offer a feel for how one becomes a professional in the field of primatology. In a way, we might think of it as a career primer for young primatologists just starting their own journeys into the nether regions of Academia. At the same time, anyone might enjoy the stories told of big dreams, exotic locations and species, and the humanity inherent in forging a new path in life and in work.
In addition to Dr. Goodall, we have also lined up other enticing speakers for future lectures, including Dr. John Mitani, Dr. Mewa Singh, Dr. Peter Henzi, and many more!
