Thursday, October 25, 2018, 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm

The US Southwest is a stunningly beautiful and diverse region, with dramatic variation in physical environments and human cultures that developed in place over thousands of years. Momix's Opus Cactus at Hancher illustrates the Sonoran Desert in the south; to the northeast, University of Iowa researchers have studied Puebloan communities. Archaeologist Margaret Beck will describe her research with Matt Hill into Puebloan life during the Spanish colonial era, including use of the adjacent Great Plains as a refuge.

Speakers: Margaret Beck (Associate Professor, Anthropology) and Matt Hill (Associate Professor, Anthropology)

Light entrees, snacks, and refreshments will be available for purchase from the Stanley Café.
