Omaha in the Anthropocene: A Learning Exploration with Creighton University
801 S 10th St
The “anthropocene” is a proposed new geological era currently under consideration by the International Commission on Stratigraphy. It makes a bold claim that humans have become a geologically significant force in earth’s history. Objects are also important material sources of these historical changes. The Durham Museum is partnering with Creighton University’s History Department to produce an immersive, interdisciplinary experience for students in the fall semester of 2017. In conjunction with the curriculum of Dr. Adam Sundberg, Assistant Professor of History and Digital Humanities, museum staff will instruct and assist Creighton students with independent research related to The Durham Museum’s collection, distillation of that research into a lecture to be presented near the end of the fall semester, and an exhibition to be presented at The Durham in Spring 2018. Come hear Creighton students present their research on the Anthropocene and see the artifacts that will be on exhibit spring of 2018!
