Animal Weapons: The Evolution of Battle
Thursday, February 11, 2016
A small, convivial group met over Ukrainian delights at Kristen’s house on January 6 and discussed The Invention of Nature; Alexander von Humboldt’s New World which all seemed to have enjoyed.
Kristen and John have more or less pre-read for us and recommend: Douglas Emlen’s Animal Weapons; The Evolution of Battle (220p, lots of illustrations).
Karin has suggested for future deliberations Jorge Taillant's Glaciers and the Politics of Ice. It was well reviewed in science magazines and by her former professor, Dr. Hellstrom who lives in Fairhaven and is a climatologist and geographer who teaches at Bridgewater. He could lead a group who has read this book in an interesting discussion.
Our February meeting is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 11, at the Museum at 7 pm. Please let us know how we can best dodge ongoing schedule conflicts, we can’t do it every time, but we’ll keep trying!
