The anthropology program at Indiana University East is providing students with new hands-on opportunities to enhance their educational experience.
This semester, students have traveled to West Virginia and Pennsylvania to visit historic sites including Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Park and Meadowcroft Rockshelter. In the classroom, students now have access to bone casts of human and animal species to study. Through the forensics course, a pig skeleton was buried on campus so that students could practice excavation and document findings.
Indiana University East has renamed The Gallery in Whitewater Hall in remembrance of Tom Thomas, artist, associate professor of fine arts and founder of the Whitewater Valley Art Competition (WVAC).
Thomas (1945-2009) taught fine arts to under-graduate students for over 30 years at IU East. He had an immense impact on his students and the campus, helping to develop the fine arts program and the WVAC, an annual art competition that attracts hundreds of artists for the unique experience of being juried by a nationally-known artist or curator who openly critiques all submitted entries before choosing the top works for the exhibit.
The next Community Engagement Series, “Making Sense of Madness: Campaigns and Elections in the Modern Era,” will be presented by School of Humanities and Social Sciences Dean Ross Alexander and Assistant Professor of Political Science Chera LaForge. The presentation will be held on Thursday, October 8, in the Whitewater Hall Community Room.
