About The Lecture
Price’s lecture will focus on her insights about diversity and immigration. As a Latin Americanist, she will draw connections to key Sauerian ideas about cultural diffusion and landscape, and then elaborate on these concepts are relevant when interpreting the challenges surrounding immigrant inclusion and exclusion.
The Archaeological Research Facility is delighted to co-host this lectureship. The ARF has long been affiliated with the departments of Anthropology, Geography, Earth and Planetary Sciences, and Soil Sciences. In addition, many of the courses taught by ARF faculty or affiliates address a variety of Carl Sauer’s other interests including the cultural and historical geography of the United States and Latin America, cultural plant geography, the history of resource use and management, and “the human” role in changing the face of the earth through time.
