Upcoming Spring 2017!

Guest Speaker: Cailtlin DeSilvey

Caitlin DeSilvey will present a chapter from her recently published book,Curated Decay: Heritage Beyond Saving (University of Minnesota Press, 2017). Through exploration of three different sites, she will show how maintenance of the boundary between cultural and natural heritage can lead to the erasure of both ecological histories and cultural memories. An alternative mode of practice based on a principle of ‘composting’, she will argue, may be more appropriate in ambiguous heritage landscapes.

Date: Monday, April 3, 2017 Location: Waterman Memorial Lounge Time: 6:00 - 7:30 pm
