Event description

Description

Creativity and Archaeology

Creativity is embedded in human history. Indeed, it is impossible to understand material change and the development of the new without invoking creativity. The location, exploration and analysis of creativity should therefore be of particular concern to archaeologists. This lecture explores the relationship between creativity and archaeology in past and present through three complementary lines of enquiry: the investigation of creativity in the past (in particular prehistory), the ways in which the past can inspire creativity in the present, and consideration of Archaeology itself as a form of creative practice.


This lecture will be chaired by Professor Stephanie Moser, Head of Archaeology. Refreshments will be served in the North Corridor from 17:30 and the lecture will be followed by a drinks reception in the North Corridor. This is a free lecture however you must book to attend and receive joining instructions.

Each of the Inaugural Lectures in Humanities will have an end of lecture collection for the speaker's nominated charity. For her lecture Professor Sofaer has chosen to support Young Minds.

Please note bookings will close for this event is 6pm on 30 April 2018 and if this event is fully booked please email Tracy Storey on tps@southampton.ac.uk to be placed on the waiting list.
