Animal Welfare and Conservation

December 09, 2016 – 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Panorama Auditorium

Presented by Shelleen Mathews of the Wild Felid Advocacy Center

This presentation will focus on the mission to provide safe haven, education, conservation, and animal welfare of wild felines. Many wild felines (from lions down to tiny Gordon's Cats) found a home with the center when their previous home (private owner, facility or zoo) needed to place them. Each wild cat is special and has a need for a safe and comfortable place to live out its life peacefully. Contrary to common belief, captive wild cats can NOT be released into the wild. They are not psychologically or physically equipped to survive in that setting. At the Wild Felid Advocacy Center each wild cat serves as an ambassador for its wild cousins and provides valuable education that enables all wild cats their rightful place in this world.  Learn more about how this center cares for the animals.

Shelleen Mathews is the Director of the Wild Felid Advocacy Center of Washington. Like most facilities such as the Wild Felid Advocacy Center, it started with one animal. In our case it was a bobcat name "Demetreus" who came to live with us in 1971.  Being a cat lover, I had a passion to share my life with a bobcat.  When he arrived he was a six week old kitten on a bottle.  Over the years he taught me many things about what it means to be a bobcat and what he needed to be healthy and happy. The center is located on Harstine Island, near Shelton, Washington.

Human Rights in History

January 13, 2017 – 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Panorama Auditorium

Presented by Nancy Koppelman

What assumptions do we each hold about human rights? How are these assumptions influenced by history, ethics, politics, and citizenship? What are the challenges to human rights movements and how can the goals of those movements be achieved around the globe? This presentation offers a comprehensive historical context for understanding how the idea of human rights became not only a commitment widely shared by individuals, but also an organizing ethic within and among global nations. Koppelman also discusses factors of geography that historically created inequality in the world for millennia. Participants will gain a better sense of how to work in practical ways toward honoring human rights, with a clearer understanding of how their efforts figure into the history of social justice in our world.

Nancy Koppelman has taught American Studies and Humanities at The Evergreen State College since 1996. She earned an M.A. in History from the University of Washington and a Ph.D. in American Studies from Emory University. Her dissertation, One for the Road: Mobility in American Life, was nominated for the Ralph Henry Gabriel Prize. Since 1996 she has created and team-taught numerous interdisciplinary undergraduate programs that combine the humanities, the sciences, and the social sciences.
