The Bindman Talks 2010 - Professor Harriet Ritvo

Amini-series of three events on the subject of man's relationship with and impact on the Lake District. Though Thirlmere may seem to epitomize the unadulterated rural ideal its calm surface is the legacy of a nineteenth-century conflict which pitted industrial progress against natural conservation and helped launch the modern environmental movement. Harriet Ritvo author of The Dawn of Green: Manchester Thirlmere and Modern Environmentalism is Professor of History at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Will take place in the Jerwood Centre the Wordsworth Museum.
