Andean and Amazonian Cultural Artifacts and the Stories They Tell

 
You are invited to the opening reception of the Global Gallery's new exhibit, The Hidden Life of Things: Andean and Amazonian Cultural Artifacts and the Stories They Tell.
 

The Andes and Amazonia have a long history of oral traditions and cultural expression. This Global Gallery Exhibit presents Andean and Amazonian cultural artifacts as systems of literacy and epistemology that operate outside of Western emphases on the written text. The collection supports a growing curriculum on the Andes and Amazonia at OSU and is part of a developing Integrated Learning Environment for the Study of Andean and Amazonian Languages and Cultures that features activity-based and experiential pedagogies compatible with non-Western traditions and that engage prevailing forms of indigenous knowledge, power, resistance, and self-determination.

 
Light refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend.
