The 2016-2017 Cultural Enhancement Series resumes Feb. 15 with a presentation by Sarah Parcak.

Parcak, whose TED Talk earned her the 2016 TED Prize, uses satellite images to discover ancient sites that had previously disappeared. Her TED bio recalls that Parcak is in many ways “like a modern-day Indiana Jones,” as she moves forward in finding and identifying unique surfaces from an aerial perspective.

Admission is free to the campus and public. No tickets are required, but seating will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Cultural Enhancement Series season continues with musical duo Black Violin on Feb. 21 and author David Sedaris on April 22.
