      This year's Vaughan Lecture feature presentation is Archaeology of, in, and for a Modern World. In this lecture, ROM Curator Craig Cipolla draws upon his recent research in New England and the Great Lakes to address archaeology’s role in contemporary society. From studying histories of settler colonialism, capitalism, and cultural plurality to effecting change in the discipline of archaeology so that it speaks to a broader set of concerns, interests, and needs, Dr. Cipolla’s work seeks to use the study of the past to help transform the present and future.

      The Vaughan Lecture is a separately ticketed program.

      Cost: Free - FREE with RSVP
