HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - Southeast Asia has long captured our imagination. This is the land of Angkor's temples lost in the jungle and of complex bas reliefs depicting everyday life long before National Geographic or Instagram came along. But as much as those archaeological marvels tell the region’s story, so does its pottery, used as it was for storage, cooking and even burial.
Learn more at the first Six@Six lecture of the 2013-2014 season on Thursday, Sept. 26, from 6-7:30 p.m., at the Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington’s Devou Park. Northern Kentucky University Associate Professor Judy Voelker will guide you through Southeast Asia's ceramic traditions. Indiana Jones fans, eat your hearts out!
Voelker is director of the NKU Museum of Anthropology. Her research interests include ceramic production and technology as well as prehistoric trade in Southeast Asia. She was a co-principal investigator on the Thailand Archaeometallurgy Project, and her grants include a Fulbright Fellowship and funding from the American Council of Learned Societies, the Luce Foundation and ASIANetwork. She also serves on the governing board of the Kentucky Academy of Sciences.
Six@Six is coordinated by NKU’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement and is designed to connect NKU to the community with a lecture series featuring its talented faculty and their research interests. This is the fourth year for the series.
