The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society will host its monthly Society Program on Sunday, October 19 at 2 pm, featuring Dr. John Bodinger de Uriarte, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Susquehanna University. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Professor Bodinger will broach the interesting subject, “Crazing the Glass Boxes- Indigeneity, Museums and the Politics of Representation.” Using Michael Ames’ work on museums and the politics of exhibition, Professor Bodinger will compare the Mashantucket Museum and Research center in Connecticut with the National Museum of the American Indian.
