Talking dinosaurs in Toronto

Posted by SOSA Webteam on January 23, 2018 in News

SOSA anthropologist Dr. Brian Noble is excited to be giving a public lecture on his museums- and science-based ethnography, Articulating Dinosaurs, (UTP, 2016) at Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum, on Sunday, January 28 at 2 p.m. This family-friendly presentation explores the technoscientific and public lives of two of the most famous of dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus rex and Maiasaura peebelsaurum – a.k.a. the King Tyrant and Good Mother Lizard.  His talk will expand on how we came to both co-habit and transform our common worlds with these two creatures of palaeobiological fascination. Simultaneously dire and hopeful stuff!
