“We are a collective of archaeologists (from PhD students to faculty members) committed to the active support of archaeology students from working-class and historically looted communities who are both regularly excluded by traditional scholarship and academic programs, or who require more economic support than those resources cover.”
Panel Discussion on “ARCHAEOLOGY IN THE TIME OF BLACK LIVES MATTER”
Where does archaeology sit in relation to Black Lives Matter and how might we find ways to engage with the insights and challenges of this moment in our archaeological practice? How do we move beyond statements of solidarity against anti-Black racism and towards making sustainable systemic changes in the discipline? And what might that change look like?
A panel discussion, facilitated by Maria Franklin & Justin Dunnavant. With Alexandra Jones, Alicia Odewale & Tsione Wolde-Michael. Chaired by Ayana Flewellen, will discuss on Thursday, June 25th, 4:10-6:00pm EDT.
