Prehistory, Personality + Place: Emil W. Haury + the Mogollon Controversy - Lecture by J. Jefferson Reid + Stephanie Whittlesey

Thursday, November 29, 6 p.m.

ASU Museum of Anthropology Human Evolution and Social Change
SHESC 340
Campus: Tempe           
Cost: Free

This presentation is part of the lecture series for "Digging Arizona," the ASU Museum of Anthropology exhibit that celebrates the centennial of Arizona's statehood and the 50th anniversary of ASU's Department of Anthropology (now the School of Human Evolution and Social Change) by examining 140 years of anthropological research in Arizona and the Southwest.
 
When Emil Haury defined the ancient Mogollon in the 1930s as a culture distinct from their Ancestral Pueblo and Hohokam neighbors, he triggered a major intellectual controversy in the history of Southwestern archaeology. It centered on whether the Mogollon were truly a different culture or merely a ‘backwoods variant’ of a better-known people. Archaeologists Jefferson Reid and Stephanie Whittlesey tell the story of the remarkable individuals who discovered the Mogollon culture, fought to validate it and eventually resolved the controversy.
 
The lecture is 6–7 p.m. in SHESC 340.  All are welcome, and admission is free.
 
After the lecture, please be sure to visit the "Digging Arizona" exhibit at the ASU Museum of Anthropology, which will be open until 8 p.m.
 
The ASU Museum of Anthropology is located on the Tempe campus, inside the SHESC building, on the northwest corner of Tyler and Cady Malls.
