In the Spring of 2016, the faculty of the College of Interdisciplinary Sciences will create new program in Antiquaries. The program in under  the leadership of Prof Carl Edwin Lindgren.

The leading society of Antiquaries is located in London, England. The society, known simply as the Society of Antiquaries, London was “founded in 1707 and today our 3,000 Fellows include many distinguished archaeologists and art and architectural historians holding positions of responsibility across the cultural heritage. The Fellowship is international in its reach and its interests are inclusive of all aspects of the material past. As a registered charity (207237), the Society’s principal objectives are to foster public understanding of that heritage, to support research and communicate the results and to engage in the formulation of public policy on the care of our historic environment and cultural property. … The critical importance of developing our interpretations of the past through research based on scientific principles, i.e. “…the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence” – See more at: https://www.sal.org.uk/about-us

Areas taught by Dr Lindgren include an in-depth photographic history of William Faulkner’s Rowan Oak and his fictional land of Yoknapatawpha County. The progrmas will train graduate students to create a living photographic history of important landscapes from the States and all around the world. Lindgren will share with the students his photographic interpretation of Yoknapatawpha County as presented by the real Lafayette County in Mississippi. The photographic history covers a 30 year period and consists of over 200 prints. The programs also consist of setting up a laboratory to conduct experiments using an array of 19th century chemical formulas and creating black and white prints. One program will present steps to setting up a black and white print darkroom to develop the students own black and white film and enlargements. As in archaeology, the students will  study the nearly forgotten art of making black and white prints. With the advent of digital photography and different modes of color printing, it is indeed becoming a lost art, to be studies in the future by archaeologists.
