Archaeology Matters: The Relevance of Archaeology in the Modern World. Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Lecture by Dr. Jeremy Sabloff

Mills B, 5:00 PM

About the Lecture

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. 

About the Speaker

Jeremy Sabloff is Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, Emeritus, and former director of the University of Pennsylvania Museum (1994-2004). An archaeologist, he recently retired as president of the Santa Fe Institute, where he continues as a member of the external faculty. He has written or edited 21 books and monographs on ancient Maya civilization, the rise of complex societies and cities, the history of archaeology, and the relevance of archaeology in the modern world. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Philosophical Society, as well as a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Society of Antiquaries (London). The Society for American Archaeology honored him with its Lifetime Achievement Award, and he is a recipient of the University of Pennsylvania Museum’s Lucy Wharton Drexel Medal.
