From Urban Coyotes to New Mexico Mountains: Summer Salons at SAR

May 15, 2018

Droughts, changing habitats, and increased urban sprawl over the last several decades have impacted the lives of animals and people alike. Continuing a programmatic focus on climate change issues, the School for Advanced Research is pleased to announce its summer salon program.

2017 SAR Salon with archaeologist Robert L. Kelly

Join SAR for these two conversation-style gatherings developed as part of the Creative Thought Forum, SAR’s initiative launched in 2017 to provide members and the general public with access to a range of innovative thinkers in the form of lectures and small-group settings that encourage discussion.

Michael F. Brown, SAR president notes, “The salons of SAR’s Creative Thought Forum are an effort to promote lively face-to-face discussions with important writers and scholars. Many of these events address issues of broad public concern, a goal consistent with SAR’s 111-year-old commitment to offering Santa Fe access to the best in contemporary social thought and artistic creativity.” Each salon invites participants to take part in a meaningful conversation with the speaker and provides an opportunity for deeper discussion on existing assumptions and evolving perspectives. This year, the events feature two award-winning authors, Dan Flores and William deBuys.

 

Summer salons are held in the Dobkin Boardroom on the SAR campus at 660 Garcia Street. Each salon is limited to 25 participants. Admission is free to all SAR members; advanced registration is required. Priority will be given to SAR members at the Chaco level and higher. To register, or if you are not a member at the Chaco level or higher and would like to upgrade your membership, or to join SAR to receive priority registration call Lindsay Archuleta at 505.954.7231.

Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural History

June 27, 2018: 10am-12pm

New Mexico-based writer and naturalist Dan Flores talks about his most recent book, Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural History (Basic Books, 2016). A distinctive species that has thwarted every effort to exterminate it, coyotes have not only survived, their range is expanding and they are thriving in suburban and urban areas from coast to coast. In this salon, Flores invites the group into a discussion on the symbolic significance of coyotes to indigenous cultures and the important role that this species plays in the changing ecology of North America.
