NZCIS and Maclaurin Chapel host August Winter Lectures on ETHICs, FAITH and EXTINCTION

August 21st 

5.15pm Maclaurin Chapel 

Prof. Andy Gosler  

Assoc. Prof  Andy Gosler,Applied Ethnobiology and Conservation., University of Oxford.

  is an ethno-ornithologist and a trustee of A Rocha UK. He has made a journey from agnostic Judaism to Christianity ten years ago after reading Dawkins, and has recently been ordained an Anglican priest. Andy has a keen interest in newer understandings of evolution and will speak on those at the Otago Conference.  

Within Ethno-ornithology his work focuses on the unique significance of birds in the engagement between humans and nature. 

With his colleague Sonia Tidemann, he co-edited the book Ethno-ornithology: Birds, Indigenous Peoples, Culture and Society, published in 2010.  The book shows that within the broader context of ethno-biology, ethno-ornithology has hitherto largely concerned relatively localized anthropological studies of the ways in which indigenous people engage (or have engaged) with birds, for example in language, for food, companionship, art and inspiration, in connection with spirituality, and as a significant element of folk-taxonomy and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK).
