  • Public Places and Private Spaces

    Lecture by Elizabeth Hora-Cook, August 3, 2017, at 6 pm
    We all move through spaces layered with meaning. How we dress for church, how loudly we speak in libraries, and who we talk to on the street are all decisions informed by the places and spaces we find ourselves in.

Elizabeth Hora, an archaeologist at the Utah State Historic Preservation Office, presents a GIS-based analysis on known archaeological sites around Moab and beyond to explore the construction of public and private spaces.
