Summer Lecture Series: Reading Objects, Finding Histories

Thursdays in July! Free

What do broken pieces of pottery, a family heirloom, and an artifact in a museum exhibit have in common? Made, owned and handled across generations, centuries or even millennia, historical artifacts are time travelers, carrying information and histories that might otherwise be misunderstood or forgotten altogether. Join us on Thursday evenings in July for three insightful lectures exploring what artifacts can teach us as bridges between past and present.
