    Archaeological sites are characteristically imbued with a multiplicity of meanings contingent on the speciļ¬cities of the society, time, space and affordances of the representational medium through which these places are perceived. Using the ancient settlement of Sirkap as a case study, Professor Michon will try to demonstrate that thinking about theories of space and place encourages us to experiment with various representational media. This experimentation can result in alternative interpretations of archaeological records as represented in John Hubert Marshall's Taxila: An Illustrated Account of Archaeological Excavations Carried Out at Taxila under the Orders of the Government of India between the Years 1913 and 1934.

    Launched in the wake of the murder of Trayvon Martin to combat anti-black racism and harnessing the global power of social media, few social movements have galvanized the nation like #BlackLivesMatter. The movement's New York-based Nigerian American cofounder, Opal Tometi, is also at the helm of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration and has been recognized among the 50 Greatest Leaders by Fortune magazine. She visits Scripps to talk about her ongoing advocacy for racial justice and to reflect on what leadership means to her in the 21st century.
