New Mexico sculptor and poet Nora Naranjo Morse will speak at Bucknell University on Thursday, Sept. 22, at 7 p.m. in Academic West 108, with a reception to follow, as part of the Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholars Program. This talk is free and open to the public.

The talk is titled "Numbe Whageh," and it will be about her work of the same name, which is part of the Cuerto Centenario project in Albuquerque, N.M. Numbe Whageh means "the center place" and it is Albuquerque's first land art piece, which focuses on Spanish conquistador Don Juan de Oeñate's treatment of Pueblo people during the late 1500s.

Morse has produced art, writings and films that look at the continuing social changes within Pueblo Indian culture. In addition to New Mexico, her work is also on display at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian.

The Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Program has been offering undergraduates the opportunity to spend time with some of the country's most distinguished scholars since 1956. Scholars visit member campuses for two days each and meet informally with students and faculty, participate in classroom discussions and seminars and give lectures open to the university community and general public. In total, 648 scholars have made 5,288 two-day visits as the program enters its 61st year.
