On November 3, 2015, Katherine Dungan (University of Arizona) will present “Religion and Religious Architecture: A Historical Approach to Interpreting Great Kivas.” From Katherine: In my work, I raise questions about how religion and large architectural spaces are interpreted in the precontact U.S. Southwest and in other non-state societies. Historically, archaeologists have tended to assume that past Southwestern religion and religious spaces were ‘integrative,’ that they served to hold social groups together in an unproblematic way. The research that I…

On March 1, 2016, Christopher Roos (Southern Methodist University) will present “Fire, Climate, and Society—Past, Present, and Future.” From Chris: In the Southwest U.S., a century of fire suppression has turned old growth forests into tinderboxes that burn in increasingly destructive ways as the climate warms.
