SAR Annual Giving Campaign Nears Goal
We invite you to invest in SAR. Donations received by June 30th will support the programs and activities planned for 2011–2012, including the following:
- Four new Native artists are scheduled to be in residence at SAR in the upcoming year, including a world-class composer, a Native Hawaiian multimedia artist, and an up-and-coming Acoma potter.
- A public lecture series on “Revolutions” will range from an archaeologist exploring cultural changes after the introduction of metallurgy, to an ethnographer who witnessed the “Arab Spring” in Tahrir Square, Egypt, and more.
- Several seminars that bring together interdisciplinary and international scholars are planned, including one on forensic anthropology and another on the moral and material dimensions of biosecurity.
- New cohorts of resident scholars will be announced soon, including an impressive group of summer scholars scheduled to join us soon.
- And much more, including tribal consultations at the Indian Arts Research Center, an impressive line-up of new publications from SAR Press, and several new lectures in our Sparks series on the history and culture of New Meixco.
These programs are not possible without the generous contributions of supporters like you. Your investment in the School is so important to us—please contribute today. You can easily donate securely online, or send your gift to School for Advanced Research, PO Box 2188, Santa Fe, NM 87505.
If you have already given, thank you so much for your support. From breakthrough research on human evolution and archaeological lessons from ancient societies, to ethnographic insights on critical issues like youth militias, cancer, and morality in financial markets, you’ve seen that our scholarly mission remains strong. So, too, our efforts to elevate Native American artistry and the collections of the Indian Arts Research Center, through which we increasingly engage tribal communities in cooperative processes of heritage documentation and educational outreach. We couldn’t do it without you.
