Omaha in the Anthropocene

Date

Mar 10, 2018 to Jan 27, 2019

Description

Omaha in the Anthropocene
The "Anthropocene" is a proposed new geological era currently under consideration by the International Commission on Stratigraphy. It makes a bold claim that humans have become a geologically significant force in earth's history. Objects are also important material sources of these historical changes. This collaborative exhibition centers on the material history of the Anthropocene using objects from the collection of The Durham Museum. The Durham Museum is partnering with Creighton University’s History Department to produce an immersive, interdisciplinary experience for students in the fall semester of 2017. In conjunction with the curriculum of Dr. Adam Sundberg, Assistant Professor of History and Digital Humanities, museum staff will instruct and assist Creighton students with independent research related to The Durham Museum’s collection, distillation of that research into a lecture to be presented near the end of the fall semester, and this exhibition.
