The next POAS presentation is on Tuesday, February 28 at 7 PM
Location: Room 105 in Gzowski College, Trent University
Guest Speaker: Dr Andrew Roddick, Department of Anthropology, McMaster University
"Archaeology, Ethnography and Radiography: Tracing Ceramic Traditions in the Lake Titicaca Basin, Bolivia"
Dr Roddick conducts archaeological research on Formative Period cultures of the south central highlands of Bolivia. His ongoing work employs ceramic analysis to investigate community organization during the periods prior to the appearance of Tiwanaku, one of the earliest urban centers in highland South America. His research has focused on the Taraco Peninsula, on the southern shores of Late Titicaca, where he has led excavations, conducted geological surveys, and conducted fine-grained ceramic analysis.
This lecture will address how potters learned their craft in the past; how crafting traditions developed, and how are they maintained; and how the production, distribution and consumption of crafts contribute to the development of community and political identities.
