Fall Semester 2019 Gallery Talks

Once a month, Thursdays at 4:00 pm

 

Join us this fall for a special series of gallery talks! As Yale University celebrates the 50th anniversary of women in Yale College, and the 150th anniversary of women graduate students (50 Women at Yale 150), we are highlighting the work of women students, staff and faculty during the 2019-2020 academic year. Yale Peabody Museum curators, collections managers and special guests will feature a few remarkable objects from our collections in a 20-minute presentation, followed by Q&A. Find out how these objects fit into the long history of the Peabody Museum as a source of knowledge and understanding about the Earth and its cultures, and why our resident experts are so excited to talk about them! Refreshments will be served; ask at the front desk for specific location.
