Of the seven lectures in the collection, four will pertain to the Panama Canal. The Library this 12 months is celebrating the Canal’s 1914 opening.

Feather Wings, leather-based Wings: Victorian Geology and the ethical Hierarchy of Deep Time

E-tickets are to be had here.

Caitlin Silberman, a PhD candidate from the university of Wisconsin-Madison is on the Linda corridor Library on a two-month fellowship. Her analysis project, “I believe we shall Be Crows:” considering with Birds in British art and visual culture, 1840 – 1900, examines anthropomorphic imagery in art and science.

Narratives by which membranous, leather-winged demons or dragons face off towards feather-winged angels and heroes are hardly authentic to the Victorians. alternatively, discoveries of fossil pterosaurs (flying reptiles) and Jurassic birds within the nineteenth century unfolded new spaces for wings to function their cultural work. in this presentation, Silberman argues that the cultural connotations connected to different types of wings conditioned the framing of flying creatures by using early anatomists, geologist, and paleontologists. further, paleontological restorations that contrast leather-based-winged, reptilian pterosaurs with ancient birds like Archaeopteryx illuminate nineteenth-century British perspectives on growth, evolution, and humanity’s position in nature.
