RESCHEDULED! Co-sponsored Exhibition: Center for the Study of the American South: Unique As We Are Alike
This fall’s Art @ the Center will feature the work of two Lumbee artists, community-based visual artist Ashley Minner of Baltimore’s Lumbee community, and artist Alisha Locklear Monroe from the home of the Lumbee people, Robeson County, North Carolina.
The lecture will focus on the salvage anthropology paradigm, drawing primary examples from the work of U of Penn anthropologist Frank Speck and Edward Sapir in the early 20th c, and between the Museum of the American Indian, now NMAI, and the early National Museum of Canada (whose ethnology division was founded by Sapir, Speck’s fellow graduate student under Boas).
