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.

Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

 
Entrepreneurship, Centre, and J. Alfred Prufrock
Like J. Alfred Prufrock, Terena Bell is no prophet. But she is an entrepreneur and, as a Centre alumna, says everything she needed to know about entrepreneurship she learned from Prufrock. For example, you can not start your own business without daring to disturb the universe — not just the one around you by product innovation but your own physical, psychological, and financial universes as well. Success requires constant change: “[A] hundred indecisions, And…a hundred visions and revisions.” Tech start-ups didn’t exist in Eliot’s time, so for a literalist, founding them is the last thing The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock is about. But that’s where Centre comes in. Whether you come because you want to be an entrepreneur, love Prufrock, or simply need the convo credit, come hear two-time tech founder Terena Elizabeth Bell ‘99 share her story.
