|An Anthropologists View of the Time Capsule|
In this program anthropologist Margie Purser will address many questions regarding the time capsule and will provide fodder for debating what items to put into the next Time Capsule
History Museum of Sonoma County
What is in the Time Capsule? And what does it say about the people in 1968 who chose and placed those particular items in the Time Capsule? Fifty years into the present, how does their worldview compare with how we now see that time? In this program, anthropologist Margaret Purser will address those questions and will provide fodder for debating what items to put into the next Time Capsule.
Margaret Purser received her BA from the College of William and Mary, and her PhD in Anthropology from UC Berkeley. She is a Professor of Anthropology at Sonoma State University and teachers courses in Historical Archaeology and Material Culture. In addition, for over a decade she participated in a series of “Teaching American History” grants with an interdisciplinary team of historians and education specialists beginning in 2004. One of her current interests is in community-based heritage projects and using new digital technologies to capture and convey information about how people are connected to place, and to the past.
