Nature: From Howling Wilderness to the Call of the Wild

David Lowenthal lectures in Idaho

Nature: From Howling Wilderness to the Call of the Wild

On 19th March, Professor David Lowenthal gave two lectures on Nature: From Howling Wilderness to the Call of the Wild at the Boyse State University, Idaho, in its Idea of Nature: Interdisciplinary Explorations series.

Uncultivated nature long remained abhorrent to most Americans. The lecture traced the stunning aesthetic reversion from “seemly cultivation” to the modern adoration of untrammelled wilderness, and discussed the troublesome ecological and social consequences of this “re-wilding”.

David’s Sylvester Baxter Lecture, Conservation Past and Present, delivered at Harvard University in November 2014, has been published by the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
