Entries in Vernay-Hopwood Chindwin Expedition (1)



I gave a talk several weeks ago at the Bard Graduate Center on the plant fibers of northern Burma. The gallery talk (and tea tasting offered by Sebastian Beckwith) was associated with the Confluences exhibition of artifacts and photos (see above) from the Vernay-Hopwood expedition to the upper Chindwin river in 1935. The exhibition was curated by Erin Hasinoff (see What Fiber?), a BGC-AMNH post-doctoral fellow and an AMNH research associate. The whole thing was great fun and the show is wonderful. [NOTE: Confluences will be in the BGC Focus Gallery until August 3. Definitely worth a visit].
