The stunning ancient art of Chauvet Cave has captured our collective imagination since its discovery in 1994. Like Paleolithic rock art across Europe and Asia, the extraordinary imagery so skillfully rendered over 30,000 years ago invites viewers to a sense of wonder and a deeper connection to our own ancient beginnings - to people who, like us, lived, loved, and survived creatively. Now, after twenty years of scientific research, the paintings are revealing their secrets. Join Dr. Jean-Michel Geneste as he shares his discoveries on the ways these ancient artists viewed their world, the principles that governed their artistic composition, and the reasons they gave time, resources, heart and mind to communicate through art.

Date/Time: Friday, April 3, 2020 | 3:00 pm
Location: ELA 114

Forensic anthropologists specialize in the study of modern human skeletal remains to assist with victim identification and the interpretation of traumatic injuries.  These specialized skills can be applied in numerous contexts including academic laboratories, medical examiner’s/coroner’s offices, the military, international human rights groups, federal government institutions, and museums.  This presentation will highlight two of these contexts: the medical examiner’s office in Houston, Texas (the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences) and international research addressing skeletal trauma and demographics from the Khmer Rouge-period (1975-1979) in Cambodia.  Specifically, I will discuss the role of forensic anthropologists in the third most populous county in the United States, and the role of skeletal analysis in documenting scientific evidence after mass violence in Cambodia.
