Dr. Michael Strezewski, associate professor of anthropology, will present “A Walk through New Harmony in 1820,” a lecture based on his research on the town, from 3:30 to 4:45 p.m. Friday, February 1, in Kleymeyer Hall in the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center.
Although much has been written on the history of the Harmonists, very little is known about the people themselves. Strezewski’s talk will focus on his work to better understand the Harmonists as individuals and gain some insight into their everyday lives based on 1820 census data, Harmonist household accounts, and 19th century maps of the town.
Strezewski has led the USI Archaeological Field School in New Harmony since 2008. His lecture is part of the College of Liberal Arts Faculty Colloquia Series.
