Annual Clarke Lecture Features Queensland Professor

April 29, 2015

An international expert in neuroscience and ancient cultures will deliver the 32nd annual L. Floyd Clarke Memorial Lecture in the University of Wyoming’s Department of Zoology and Physiology Thursday, April 30, at 7 p.m. in Room 138 of the Berry Biodiversity Conservation Center.

Jack Pettigrew, professor emeritus at the Queensland Brain Institute in Australia, will speak on “Bradshaw Rock Art: Controversies over an Extinct Culture,” discussing conflicting views of the origins of distinctive rock art found in western Australia.

Pettigrew also will present a departmental seminar, “The San Bushmen: Past and Present,” Friday, May 1, at noon in Room 138 of the Berry Center. The San people are indigenous hunter-gatherers in southern Africa.

Thursday’s lecture is sponsored by the L. Floyd Clarke Fund in the Department of Zoology and Physiology. Clarke began working at UW in 1935, served as department head from 1942-68, and also served as associate dean of the College of Health Sciences. He died in 1981.

The L. Floyd Clarke Fund benefits UW students and faculty members through lectures, visiting professorships, graduate student stipends and awards for outstanding undergraduates and faculty.
