Alexandra Greenwald, PhD — Continuing Education Series

January 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us on Wednesday, January 8 at 6 p.m. when Alexandra Greenwald, PhD, the curator of ethnography at NHMU, presents “Parenting in Ancient Western North America.”

What was is like to be a parent in ancient western North America? Learn about breastfeeding practices, how mothers transported their infants, what their parents fed them, and gain insight into how they learned to hunt and gather foods for themselves. Discover how these findings can help us understand how parents balanced childcare and work, and how people coped with climate change and food scarcity in the past.

This event is free for NHMU volunteers and staff, University of Utah students, faculty, and staff, and Museum Members. It is also open to the general public with Museum admission, which is only $5 on Wednesday after 5 p.m.

No RSVP is required. Seats will be reserved for late-arriving volunteers.
