Archaeology, Global Change, and the Modern World: Tales from the American West
Please join us for a Provost's Distinguished Faculty Lecture by Associate Professor Kelly Dixon of the University of Montana's Department of Anthropology.
Professor Dixon will present a handful of archaeological case studies of past humans facing issues relevant to life in the modern world, including vulnerability, risk, and adaptation. The way people responded to these challenges in the past can help us address present challenges such as environmental planning, sustainability, and preservation of the world's natural and cultural heritage.
Professor Dixon specializes in archaeology in the American West. She is co-editor and contributing author of An Archaeology of Desperation: Exploring the Donner Party's Alder Creek Camp, winner of the Society for Historical Archaeology's 2013 James Deetz Book Award.
