Historical Human and Cetacean Cultures

Tue, July 23, 2:00 to 3:30pm, Centro de Filosofia e Ciencias Humanas (CFH), Auditorio do Bloco E

Session Submission Type: Panel


Environmental historians have increasingly been writing animal cultures into their work. Whales - large-brained, highly cultural mammals whose actions have at time been recorded in great historical detail- offer a particularly useful way into these histories. This panel examines the intersections of human and cetacean histories around the globe, from the 16th century to the present.
