April 19 | Location and time to be decided.

Join anthropologist Elizabeth DeMarrais (Cambridge University) as she investigates place-making, deposition, and collaborative labor projects using archaeological evidence from the Calchaquí Valley, Argentina. She will show how rituals structured communal activity, building a sense of mutual obligation and interdependence, within and beyond individual communities.
