Guest Lecture: Dr. Mark Kenoyer

The Indus Civilization, Pakistan and India: New Discoveries of Textiles and Their Legacy

Dr. Mark Kenoyer, Professor of Archaeology and Cultural Anthropology, Director of the Center for South Asia at the University of Wisconsin, Madison
BYU Museum of Art, Lied Gallery

This illustrated lecture, held in conjunction with the MOA’s exhibition Fabric of Belonging: Exotic Quilts from Pakistan & India will present an overview of the Indus Civilization (2600-1900 BC) of Pakistan and Western India, with an emphasis on recent discoveries related to textiles, writing and major craft technologies. The production and trade of artifacts such as textiles, as well as seals, sculpture, tools and ornaments is key to understanding the social, political and ideological aspects of this early urban society. New discoveries from Oman and the Gulf region indicate that the possible Indus communities were living in these regions.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the BYU Department of Anthropology, BYU Department of Asian Studies, and the BYU Museum of Art.
