Kent Library’s Spring Athenæum Series: Toward an Archaeology of Childhood in the Central Illinois River Valley

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Noon, Feb. 6 in Sadie’s Place.

Kent Library’s Athenæum series continues with Dr. Jennifer Bengtson from the Department of Global Cultures and Languages presenting “Toward an Archaeology of Childhood in the Central Illinois River Valley”.   Studying children in archaeological contexts can be difficult, but leaving them out of our studies leads to an inherently incomplete understanding of history. Dr. Bengtson will discuss her work on mortuary and village excavations from a prehistoric archaeological site in the Central Illinois River Valley. Building on previous Michigan State University and Illinois State Museum research, she suggests that an archaeology of childhood contributes to a richer interpretation of social life within this unique prehistoric community. The presentation is open to all, and refreshments will be available.

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

On January 30, 2013 at 12:00 noon in Kent Library’s Sadie’s Place, the library will kick off its first Athenæum event for the new Spring semester. Dr. Jeremy Barnes from the Department of Health, Human Performance & Recreation will be discussing “Motivation for Exercise.”  Many individuals start exercise programs with expectations of success.  However, too often they get off track or feel they have too much going on in their lives to continue with their exercise. At this presentation, you will learn ways that individuals can stay on track and keep working toward their exercise goals. This presentation will include proven strategies for success and tips on how to keep levels high. The presentation is open to all and refreshments will be available.
