J. Mark Kenoyer

Silks of South Asia

Professor Kenoyer will give an informal lecture in front of the hallway cases displaying his
collection of wild-silk cocoons, implements, and textiles. Professor Kenoyer has excavated the world’s oldest-known silk fiber from the Indus Valley site of Harappa; the objects on exhibit represent this tradition. You will have a chance to touch the different wild silks. (The display will be up
through Spring term and we encourage you to view it on your own, as well.)
