American’s Who Tell the Truth: Portraits by Robert Shetterly
Artist and activist Robert Shetterly will be in residence at Centre College as a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow the week of February 19-23, when he will meet with students and exhibit his artwork. His extensive, ongoing portrait series, “Americans Who Tell the Truth,” highlights citizens who “courageously address issues of social, environmental, and economic fairness.” The portraits are painted in a realistic manner and inscribed with a relevant quote from the person. Sixteen portraits will be on display in the AEGON Gallery of the Jones Visual Arts Center on Centre’s campus. Along with well-known figures, many portraits are of unsung heroes, who work for what their conscience tells them is right. Issues in the following fields are addressed by those in the exhibit: human rights, civil rights, politics, peace, armed forces, domestic violence, health care, environmental damage, education, workers rights.

CONVO: Archaeology and New Technologies
CONVO: Archaeology and New Technologies
Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

 
What Can Archaeology Tell Us About New Technologies?
Dr. Lauren Herckis, research scientist and instructor at Carnegie Mellon University, will discuss how archaeologists learn about the lives and cultures of ancient people by studying the things they left behind. Archaeological methods, which were developed to study technological change in the past, can be used to understand technological innovation in the present. The emergence, form, and social roles of today’s cutting-edge technologies are shaped by the same forces which affected the maintenance of water management technologies in northern Africa 3,000 years ago, the development of pottery in the American southwest 1,500 years ago, and the emergence and disappearance of electric cars in the U.S. a century ago. Archaeology gives us a way to understand how technological innovations take root or fade from memory. Examining how gadgets are produced, used, reused, repaired, and discarded helps us better understand the relationship between labor, the exploitation of available resources, and the emergence, transformation, and diffusion of technological traditions.
