Gill-Robinson to present colloquium on mummy studies

Heather Gill-Robinson will present “Evidence-Based Transdisciplinary Mummy Studies for Research and Education: Mummies in the Museum, Laboratory, Classroom and Communities" on Friday, Jan. 23, at 3 p.m. in the Memorial Union Arikara room. The Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Emergency Management will host several colloquiums during spring semester.

Gill-Robinson's work in mummy studies focuses on development and application of the evidence-based transdisciplinary approach to the analysis of mummified human remains. This approach emphasizes the necessity of sustainable, high-quality research based on development of a scientific research plan for the holistic interpretation of mummies.

This colloquium will present the methods and results of some of Gill-Robinson's current research with more than 35 mummies from around the world. She also will discuss her commitment to connecting research and education, both in an academic setting and a public sphere.
