In honor of Earth Day, anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson will give lectures on April 22 and 23 at Wichita State University. The two talks are free and open to the public.
Bateson will present "Earth Our Kin: Climate Change and the Ecological Threat" at 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 22, in 100 Lindquist Hall. She will address society's inability to address ecological dangers. She hopes to develop a new pattern of interaction with the natural world through examining human societal systems of kinship that establish cooperative relationships.
The second lecture, "An Anthropologist looks at the Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam," will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, in 100 Lindquist Hall.
The talks are sponsored by the Sally and David Jackman Lecture Series in WSU's anthropology department.
