Paneldiskusjon om rovdyr i Finland

[Sakset fra min engelskspråklige blogg Utopian Realism]

The Turku ESEH panel "Never cry wolf. Human-predator interactions", which I mentioned before it took place yesterday, was not attended by all that many - around 25 people including panelists and local staff. But contentwise it was good, really good. Even all contributions from the audience (made up of environmental historians) were without exception relevant and stimulating. The panel session lasted for 2 hours.

Heta Lähdesmäki was there instead of Jukka Bisi. Chair and initiator Timo Vuorisalo had brought a stuffed wolverine for the occasion. We the four panelists did not fundamentally disagree on any point, though there were some cases where the situation in Poland was not comparable to that in Norway, Sweden and Finland.

The 6th European conference in environmental history was my second conference in that field. In 2009 I participated at the 1st world congress in environmental history, in Copenhagen, where I introduced my notion of alienated wolves.
