Dr. Jane Goodall to Keynote Lecture at UWinnipeg

Renowned primatologist and animal rights activist Dr. Jane Goodall will keynote an upcoming lecture at the University of Winnipeg.

Featuring weekly guest speakers, a fall institute series entitled “Humanity, Animality, Secularity” will begin September 10 and run to November 26.

“This lively, interdisciplinary seminar will explore the role of animals in the Western moral imagination,” the U of W said in a release. “This course considers the different ways in which Western humanism, ethics, and secular society have failed to come to grips with the place and status of animals in our world.”

Spaces are limited for the course and students can register online.

Humanity, Animality, Secularity will run Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.

Goodall’s public lecture will be held on Friday, September 11 at 7 p.m. in the David F. Anderson gym, inside the Duckworth Centre. Line-up begins at 5 p.m. with the lecture set for 7 p.m. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
