16th Annual Thomas H. Lake Lecture

We hope you can join us for our 16th Annual Thomas H. Lake Lecture. This year we will hear from best-selling author and world-wide speaker, Lynne Twist at Indiana Landmarks in Indianapolis on Thursday, April 11, 2019. The topic is “The Soul of Money: Shifting from Scarcity to Abundance.” The lecture begins at 6:00 pm with a reception to follow. This talk will address the mindset of scarcity and how it grips us, having us live in a constant state of worry and fear, rather than allowing us to see the bounty, flow, generosity and sufficiency that is available to each of us in life.

Ms. Twist is the author of the best-selling, award-winning book “The Soul of Money: Transforming Your Relationship with Life and Money.” Founder of the Soul of Money Institute, Lynne has worked with over 100,000 people in 50 countries in board retreats, workshops, keynote presentations and one-on-one coaching in the arenas of fundraising with integrity, conscious philanthropy, strategic visioning and creating a healthy relationship with money.

In 2018, the Department of Anthropology partnered with industry leaders to undertake one of the largest applied anthropological research projects ever in Indiana. This work, involving the detection, exhumation and analysis of over 500 individuals from Bethel Cemetery, provided a unique opportunity to identify and reconstruct the lives and lifeways of early Hoosier pioneers, as well as later inhabitants who experienced industrialization, urbanization and key moments in the state’s and nation’s history.

Associate professor of anthropology Jeremy Wilson will share details of the project in the upcoming Liberal Arts Talk, “Digging Deeper into 19th-Century Central Indiana: A Bioarchaeological Analysis of the Bethel Cemetery.” The lecture is set for 4 p.m. March 21 in the Campus Center, Room 307. Register online to attend.
