Dr. Kacy Hollenback (SMU) joins us for our April café. She will discuss instances in which social networks led to increased vulnerability in certain disaster contexts (such as smallpox epidemics), instead of increasing resilience (as most people envision). This season’s theme is “Connections.”

Archaeology Café is an informal forum where adults can learn more about the Southwest’s deep history and speak directly to experts. We have based Archaeology Café on the science pub or science cafe model that developed in Europe and quickly spread to major American cities. At Archaeology Café, we break down the static, jargon-laden dynamic of traditional lectures, and have an expert share some ideas with the group in ways that get discussion going. (Food and drink make things a little livelier, too.)

The program is free, but participants are encouraged to order their own refreshments. Although kids may attend with adult supervision, Archaeology Cafés are best for adults and young adults.

If accommodation is needed due to disability, please contact Kate Gann by email or phone, 520-882-6946 x 16.

Place: We meet on the patio of Casa Vicente, 375 S. Stone Ave., Tucson. Enter through the restaurant.

Time: Presentations begin after 6:00 p.m. It is best to arrive before 5:30 p.m., as seating is open and unreserved, but limited. Share tables and make new friends!

Cost: Archaeology Café is free, but guests are encouraged to order their own refreshments from the menu.
