Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM

Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Scott Legge, Anthropology, will present  “Archaeological Survey at Ordway: Macalester’s Natural (and Cultural?) History Study Area."  The Ordway Field Station at Macalester is well known for exciting natural history and ecology research collaborations between faculty and students. However, very little is known about its potential for cultural history research. Thanks to grant funding from the Minnesota Historical Society and Macalester’s Student Faculty Summer Research program, five Macalester students were able to participate in a cultural resource management survey of the Ordway property during this past summer. This talk discusses the classroom preparation, research methodology, and outcomes of this thrilling new area of research at Ordway.  All faculty are welcome. Lunch will be provided.
