Behind the glass eyes of each taxidermy specimen there is a story of conquest, empire, race, gender, environmental anxiety, conservation, and preservation. Join us this season as we listen to the narratives of the people, places, and animals that defined the man known as the father of modern taxidermy, Carl Akeley. Welcome to Hear UR season two, Nature Reconstructed.
The coordinating producers for this season of HearUR are Maya Lippard and Liam Gousios. The executive producers are Thomas Fleischman and Stephen Roessner.
Our theme music is by Joshua Copperman.
HearUR is made possible by the Teaching Innovation Grant at the University of Rochester.
