Rob Sullivan, of the UCLA Dept. of Geography, delivers a lecture on the acheology of the contemporary past.
From the Machine Project website:
The ghosts of the past and the traces of history are inscribed on the streets of L.A., conjuring images of shattered dreams and grotesque crimes. The hills and flats of this city are haunted with acts of infamous criminality as well as the anonymous remains of the banality of lives spent in total obscurity. Starting with one of the city's most notorious crimes -- the kidnapping and murder of Marion Parker in 1927 by William Edward Hickman, we explore the ways in which specters haunt Los Angeles.This is the third and final lecture in a series.
