Anthropology talks open to the public at Ripon library
Globalization and cross-cultural differences in family structure will be addressed in talks this fall at the Ripon Public Library. Emily Stovel, chair of the anthropology department and coordinator of the Museum Studies Program at Ripon College, will be the speaker.
The talks are aimed at broadening the learning community in the Ripon area. They are free and open to the public and will last about one hour in the Silver Creek Room at the library.
At 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 26, Dr. Stovel will talk about “Globalization from an Anthropological Perspective.” She will explore the benefits and drawbacks of the idea of globalization as anthropologists see it, exploring issues of poverty, cultural diversity and self-determination.
At 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 31, Dr. Stovel will address “Cross-Cultural Differences in Family Structure.” She will compare different family structures and relationships and explore the implications for individuals and communities.
Anyone interested in the subjects of the talks are welcome to the recommended reading available at the library. Additional further reading will be recommended at the talk.
Although these talks are open to anyone who wishes to attend, they also are part of courses Stovel is teaching this semester at the College. A special program for seniors age 55 or older in the Ripon area allows them to audit a College course for $10. Information is available by calling the registrar’s office at 920-748-8119.
