Alum Fladd to Present Virtually on Pueblo Ceramics

Aug. 27, 2021

Date: Tuesday, September 21, 2021 - 17:00 to 18:30

“Containing Identities: Social Roles of Ceramics in the Pueblo Southwest” will be presented virtually on Tuesday, Sept. 21, from 6:00–7:30 p.m. (MDT; so 5:00–6:30 p.m. Arizona time) by Samantha Fladd (Ph.D. UArizona, 2018), Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Colorado Boulder. The Zoom presentation is hosted by the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures.

“The diverse cultures of the Pueblo Southwest often evoke images of beautifully formed and decorated ceramic vessels,” said Fladd, who has conducted fieldwork in New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado.  “The ceramic traditions of the Four Corners region have been extensively studied, and vessels were intimately involved in the social lives of the Ancestral Puebloan peoples.”  She will also discuss her own research into unique vessel forms at Homol’ovi, an Ancestral Hopi series of sites dating to the 14th century AD.

Admission is $5 per Zoom connection, and registration is available at Registrants will receive their Zoom invitation on the day before the program.
