I am putting together a panel proposal on wildlife management in the 20th Century for the Western History Conference in St Louis, MO, October 11-14, 2006.
The theme of the conference is "Making Common Ground." I am looking for a third paper to complement research on bison management during the 1940s and 1950s in South Dakota, and salmon management during the same period in Alaska. The two papers already selected for this panel argue that the management strategies were motivated more by the socio-cultural interest of humans than out of concern for the biological well-being of the animals.
Please submit a 200 word abstract to David Nesheim. Submissions from non-historians are welcome.
