The Denison Goodspeed Lecture Series will present an illustrated lecture on the archaeological and archaeoastronomy of Ancient Pueblo culture in the Four Corners area of the United States by Jim Krehbiel, Ohio Wesleyan University professor, at 7 p.m., on Thursday, Nov. 5, in the 4th floor of Slayter Hall (200 Ridge Road). Krehbiel’s lecture, "Sightlines and Site Lines: Art and Archaeostronomy," along with a presentation of his prints, drawings, and computer images is free and open to the public.
Krehbiel’s work focuses on the regions of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona. He draws from elements such as cliff dwellings, pueblos, dance sites, towers, granaries, cultivation fields and rock art sites in his art and research, examining the relationship between these locations and their function within the environment.
Named in honor of the late Edgar J. Goodspeed, the Goodspeed Lecture Series brings speakers to Denison that focus on religion or fields related to religious issues. Goodspeed, an 1890 Denison graduate, was one of nine biblical scholars who worked on the Revised Standard Version of the Scriptures, published in 1946.
