Discover some fascinating research at one of these lectures during the 2017 Curatorial Lecture Series at the Royal Alberta Museum.
Rattlesnakes & Rodents | March 8
Dr. Chris Jass
Curator, Quaternary Palaeontology
Learn about a newly discovered fossil locality from the Black Hills of South Dakota, and explore how it can help us understand the Ice Age history of the northern plains.
Treaty Days as Adaptation & Resistance | March 22
Dr. Melanie Niemi-Bohun
Treaty Days are both the yearly renewal of the treaty relationship and a stark reminder of many broken promises. Learn how objects convey histories and open new perspectives on treaty annuity payments.
Appreciating the Small Things | April 5
Dr. Richard Caners
Learn about liverworts and mosses, a diverse group of miniature plants called bryophytes. They are an integral but often overlooked part of ecosystems in Alberta.
All lectures take place at 7 pm in the Royal Alberta Museum Theatre (12845-102 Ave.), and admission is free!
