Department 25th Anniversary Saturday Events

After a night of festivities to celebrate the Department of Archaeology and Art History’s 25th Anniversary, alumni and current students got together to network and share information.  The morning activities included a session led by Andrew Reinhard (94) and Andrea Kendrick (10) about careers in media and publishing, a Skype session with Nigel Hetherington, co-founder of Past Preservers, about media opportunities for archaeologists, as well as a “speed-networking” session where current students met with and asked questions of alumni who have found work in various fields.  This event was well-attended with students gaining new and valuable contacts from the alumni who generously donated their time. 

After a break for lunch everyone reconvened at the Smythe Lecture Hall in the Schroeder Family School of Business Administration to hear Dr. Alan Kaiser’s exciting lecture detailing his experience as he wrote his new book Archaeology, Sexism, and Scandal:  The Long-Suppressed Story of One Woman’s Discoveries and the Man Who Stole Credit for Them. The lecture hall was packed with not only university students and faculty but also many from the Evansville community.
