Monica L. Smith Cities: The First 6,000 Years
August 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Monica L. Smith is an archaeologist whose principal research interests are the human interaction with material culture, urbanism as a long-term human phenomenon, and the development of social complexity.
Smith’s newly published book, Cities: The First 6,000 Years, explores the archeology, history, and contemporary observations of cities and discusses the development of networked infrastructure, the rise of an entrepreneurial middle class, and the culture of consumption in the urban realm.
