1995 - In the Company of Animals - Keynote: Stephen Jay Gould | The New School
April 6-8, 1995:
The 4th conference in the Social Research Conference series, In the Company of Animals examined our relationship with other animals over time and in different cultures through a public conference at the New School, a poetry reading organized by the American Academy of Poets, and exhibits and other public programs at the Pierpont Morgan Library, The Asia Society, The Museum of African Art, and the Jewish Museum.
Stephen Jay Gould (September 10, 1941 -- May 20, 2002) was the Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology at Harvard University and the Keynote speaker and author for the conference.
This conference was made possible by generous support from The Howard Gilman Foundation, The National Endowment for the Humanities, The Esther and Joseph Klingenstein Foundation, and, finally, Ms. Caroline Williams.
The conference proceedings are available in a special issue of Social Research, Vol. 62 No. 3 (Fall 1995). You may also join our event mailing list by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
