What role can culture play in widening the understanding, representation and remembrance of extinction in the natural world? CMCI’s Dr Jessica Rapson is co-organising a one day conference on the subject of memory, culture and extinction at London’s Natural History Museum on December 11th.

The event aims to foster dialogue between academics, journalists, museum curators, charities, writers, environmental groups, and the media to explore how societies engage with the complexities of the processes of extinction and the remembrance of the extinct.
