NATURAMA lecture: Wolves in Switzerland
Nikolaus Heinzer, Dr., Cultural Anthropologist, University of Zurich
Almost 30 years ago, after a long absence, the first wolves were sighted again in Switzerland. In their lecture, Elisa Frank and Nikolaus Heinzer shed light on this return as a cultural and social process. With their expansive way of life, wolves repeatedly cross borders: political-administrative but also imaginary borders, such as those between mountain areas and lowlands or between wilderness and cultural landscape. As a result, the animals set something in motion. They make people rethink and renegotiate boundaries and spaces: Who has space where and why? The speakers follow these wolfish infiltrations from a cultural studies perspective and provide insights into their book "Wolves in Switzerland – A Return with Consequences", published in 2022. | The Auditorium Schlossstall of the Swiss National Park is located directly next to the castle. 10 minutes from the train station.
