"The Archaeology and Art of Peru: 12,000 Years of Human History in the Andes"
It’s been several months since our last TAS Brown Bag, so mark your calendars for Friday, April 12th at noon. Our speaker is Tom Dillehay, Ph.D., Rebecca Webb Wilson University Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, Religion, and Culture and Professor of Anthropology and Latin American Studies at Vanderbilt University. Professor Dillehay has carried out numerous archaeological and anthropological projects in Peru, Chile, Argentina and other South American countries and in the United States. His main interests are migration, the long-term transformative processes leading to political and economic change, and the interdisciplinary and historical methodologies designed to study those processes.
His presentation will present some of the most important scientific archaeological studies in the Andes over the past several decades, including several of the author's research projects in Peru and Chile. Beginning with the earliest hunters and gatherers and ending with the great Inca civilization, both the universal and the exceptional features of Andean civilization will be covered.
Bring your lunch if you like and join us at BLM’s offices on Cruz Alta at noon on Friday, April 12th.
