The IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI in conjunction with the Department of Anthropology in partnership with Spirit & Place present the 29th Joseph T. Taylor Symposium, Invisible Indianapolis: Race and Heritage in the Circle City.

History is all around us — in spaces and places that appear commonplace but conceal amazing stories from the past. “Invisible Indianapolis: Race and Heritage in the Circle City” explores the histories and material culture of local neighborhoods, revealing lesser-known stories of American urban life. These presentations and workshops will illustrate how Midwestern post-industrial cities like Indianapolis have been transformed by such processes as disinvestment, urban renewal, highway construction, racial and religious discrimination, and, more recently, gentrification.

Conference only attendance at the Joseph T. Taylor Symposium sessions is free and open to the public, but registration is required. All registrants are invited to the luncheon, for which there is a charge. For more information or to register for the conference, luncheon, or to make a gift in Dr. Taylor’s memory, please click here.
