The University of Maryland Heritage Lectures, 2015-2016
We are pleased to announce the inaugural year of the UMD Heritage Lectures, hosted by the Department of Anthropology. The UMD Heritage Lectures are intended as a broad venue for discussion on the study of past societies and the dynamics of social change, the management of historic resources, the politics of public engagement, and the diverse array of contemporary projects and struggles in which the past becomes mobilized for social, political, economic, and moral purposes.
The Heritage Lectures will be held once a month during the academic year, on Wednesdays starting at 3:00 PM in Woods Hall, Room 1102. Questions may be directed to Dr. Kathryn Lafrenz Samuels (firstname.lastname@example.org).
