Fowler kicks off anniversary celebration with JAR lecture

A leading specialist on the history of anthropology in the U.S. Southwest, Don D. Fowler, Mamie Kleberg professor of anthropology and historic preservation at the University of Nevada, Reno, will deliver the XVI Journal of Anthropological Research (JAR) Distinguished Lecture on Thursday, March 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the Anthropology Lecture Hall, rm. 163.

The free, illustrated lecture kicks off the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the UNM Department of Anthropology.

Fowler will present, “Fields of Research Peculiarly Adapted to the Environment of the University: J.F. Zimmerman, E.L. Hewett, and the Beginnings of Anthropology at UNM.”

Based on his current archival research, Fowler's lecture will explore the personalities and interactions of former UNM President James Zimmerman and Edgar Lee Hewett during the era of anthropological and archaeological “wheeling-and-dealing,” the late 1920s.

In addition, Fowler will present an informal seminar on “What Goes Around (sometimes) Comes Around: Fads and Fashions in the Archaeology of the Greater Southwest” on Friday, March 14, at noon in Anthropology, rm. 178.

JAR is an international bulletin published quarterly by UNM since 1945.
