The Ghosts of Gombe
Geological Lecture Hall, Thursday, November 29 at 6pm
Dale Peterson, Author

On July 12, 1969, Ruth Davis, a young American volunteer at Dr. Jane Goodall’s research site in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania, left camp to follow a chimpanzee into the forest. Six days later, her body was found floating at the base of a high waterfall. What happened? Drawing on his recent book, The Ghosts of Gombe, Dale Peterson will delve into the full story of day-to-day life at Gombe during the months preceding Ruth’s death. These months were marked by stress, excitement, social conflicts, cultural alignments, and the friendships that developed among three of the researchers and some of the chimpanzees.

Lecture and Book Signing. Free and open to the public. Free event parking available at 52 Oxford Street Garage.

Presented by Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology and Harvard Museum of Natural History.

The Hunt for Human Nature in Cold War America
Geological Lecture Hall, Thursday, December 6 at 6pm
Erika Milam, Professor of History, Princeton University

After World War II, evolutionary scientists began rethinking their views on humanity’s past. What if human history was not merely a cooperative struggle against a harsh environment? What if violence and war were normal states of existence, punctuated by brief moments of peace? These are the questions Erika Lorraine Milam explores in her new book, Creatures of Cain: The Hunt for Human Nature in Cold War America. She will discuss how anthropologists and zoologists during the Cold-War era struggled to reconcile humanity’s triumph as a species with the possibility that this success might be rooted in our capacity to kill one other.

Lecture & Book Signing. Free and open to the public.

Presented by the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments and Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology.

Free event parking available at 52 Oxford Street Garage.
