Virtual Science Café: Human(ity) Remains: What Do We Owe the Dead?

7:00-8:00 p.m. Central Time

Morrill Hall is pleased to bring our monthly Science Café program to you in a virtual format! Join us on July 28th at 7pm for Human(ity) Remains: What Do We Owe the Dead?

The University of Nebraska State Museum Anthropology Collection contains over 40,000 artifacts and objects from around the world. The museum is also home to Egyptian mummies and Native American human remains. Why doesn’t the Museum display these human remains to the public? And what do we owe the deceased individuals and their descendants? Join Katelyn Trammell, Anthropology Collection and NAGPRA Assistant, to explore the history of human remains in museum collections and the importance of repatriating human remains.

We will be broadcasting this program via Zoom and Facebook Live, so there are multiple ways to watch! To connect via Zoom, please register here for this FREE program, as space is limited. A connection link will be provided to you via email prior to the program. To join on Facebook Live, visit the UNSM Facebook page just after 7pm to watch.

Our Science Café partner, The Happy Raven, is currently open Tuesday evening for take-out sales, so stop by and grab a drink before the Science Café presentation. 

This presentation would be best enjoyed by ages 15+.
