Archaeology Matters: The Relevance of Archaeology in the Modern World
The Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar at Centre, Jeremy Sabloff, is the Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Anthropology Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania, and External Professor and Past President of the Santa Fe Institute. Archaeology is not just about the past, but also is quite relevant to the world today. It can fill key gaps in recent history that have been ignored by written records, it can help preserve and conserve the world’s historical heritage, it can strengthen tourism and economic opportunities, it can help build ethnic pride (although this has its dangers, too!), and it can serve modern communities in a variety of ways such as providing expert testimony in land disputes. It also can offer new understandings of waste disposal, homelessness, border crossings, and the use of forensics. Moreover, archaeology’s long time perspective can provide fresh insights into issues such as sustainability, resilience, and adaptation to changing ecological and cultural conditions. While archaeology clearly cannot solve the huge problems facing peoples around the globe, this lecture shows how it can shed some useful light on these problems.

Bastian Lecture: Jed Deppman on Emily Dickinson

Crounse Hall – Vahlkamp Theatre, Danville KY

 
Trying to Live with Emily Dickinson
Centre’s English Program sponsors the annual Bastian Lecture, honoring the late Carol Bastian. This year’s speaker is Jed Deppman, Professor of Comparative Literature and English at Oberlin College. His lecture, titled “Trying to Live with Emily Dickinson,” explains how to have a meaningful death, and by association, how to have a meaningful life.
 
Cultural historians of Civil War America have documented the ways in which the late-medieval tradition of the ars moriendi — the art of dying well — sought to preserve traditional meanings and values in a time of unprecedented chaos and loss. Placed in this context, Emily Dickinson’s poems can be read as her own lifelong attempt to work out a personal ars moriendi. Did she, at the same time, produce an ars vivendi? Can her writings help us understand and act upon the choices that shape our lives as well as our deaths?
