Past Events

The Stone Age Institute, in collaboration with the CRAFT Research Center at Indiana University, sponsors and hosts a number of events every year for the University and general public.

These special events include:

- a conference series on selected topics of critical interest to human origins studies.

- an ongoing lecture and bag lunch lecture series on a range of topics involving scholars from around the world as well as the Bloomington community.

- the Program in Human Evolution lectures and workshops on Human Origins Research, which brings in noted authorities in human evolutionary studies.

- the Craftsmanship Lecture Series, which features world-class artisans from diverse backgrounds (e.g., blacksmiths, authors, filmmakers, musicians, beer-makers, vintners, inventors, and dry-stone masons) to discuss their crafts from a personal perspective, often with practical demonstrations or performances illustrating their craft in addition to more formal lectures.
