Traces and Tracks: Journeys with the San
Paul Weinberg, Photographer
Free Public Lecture and Book Signing.
Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage
Presented by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology in collaboration with Documentary Educational Resources
For nearly three decades, Paul Weinberg has traveled to Namibia, Botswana, and South Africa to document the lives of hunter-gatherer communities, the San (Africa’s first people), and their struggles to hang on to their land, culture, and values as they faced serious threats by outside settlers. Weinberg will discuss his book Traces and Tracks (2017, Jacana Media), the culmination of his thirty-year journey, featuring essays and over 100 photographs that convey the modern-day San’s daily lives, their relationship to nature and game parks, and their ways of adjusting to a fast-changing world.
This event will be livestreamed on the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture Facebook page. A recording of this program will be available on the HMSC lecture video page approximately three weeks after the lecture.
