What is important to an archaeologist? Lynn Swartz Dodd addressed the topic "What Matters to Me and Why" on January 18, 2012.

A teacher of ancient Near Eastern and Egyptian archaeology, Dodd directs the interdisciplinary archaeology undergraduate major at USC. She also manages a major archaeology research survey in Turkey, in the region surrounding ancient Antioch, and co-organized the Israeli-Palestinian Archaeology Working Group. In addition, she runs ArcSmart, a partnership between the Archaeology Research Center at USC and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), which allows USC undergraduates to bring artifacts into local school classrooms to teach hands-on lessons about the past. Dodd was named a distinguished faculty fellow at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences in August 2011.

"What Matters to Me and Why" is a speakers' series that bridges the separation between intellectual life and personal and spiritual issues by having featured USC faculty and administrators spend about 20 minutes addressing the topic "What Matters to Me and Why," followed by an informal dialogue rounding out the hour.

The program is sponsored by the USC Office of Religious Life and the USC Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics.
