Description:
Through the lens of Rowe's relationships with two Kenyan conservationists - Wangari Maathai and Daphne Sheldrick - THE ELEPHANTS IN THE ROOM surveys a number of prejudices that many of us who are fortunate to be born with the privileges attached to our skin colour, sex and access to resources don't like to deal with: race, misogyny and the legacy of empire. By examining the two women's memoirs (Unbowed and Love, Life, and Elephants), both of which were launched following talks at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, these metaphorical elephants in the room are combined with a study of the exploitation of actual elephants on the continent of Africa, and the iterations of memory that are disclosed or hidden in the writing of memoirs and the collecting of bones for museums. Like elephants themselves, THE ELEPHANTS IN THE ROOM ranges far, analysing work by Joseph Conrad, Robert Pogue Harrison, Barbara Gowdy, Willard Price, George Orwell, Adam Hochschild and others.
