Title: Feeding Relationships: Elucidating Social Organization in Prehistoric Anatolia Through Analyses of Feasts
Description: Consuming and sharing food nourishes more than our bodies; it also nourishes our social relationships. This talk will examine the role that feasting plays in reinforcing and transforming social relationships at two 6 th millennium sites in southern Turkey: Domuztepe and Tell Kurdu. By considering the different ways pastoral resources were used within the communities for daily meals and communal feasts, we can understand aspects of their social, political, and economic processes and identify how members of these communities experimented with incipient social complexity.
Lunch: Curtain Call and Hamilton Whole Foods, while supplies last
The next talk in this series is on December 1st with Professor Murphy (ECON).
