At noon on Friday, November 20, the Collaborative Archaeology Workgroup and the UMMAA Brown Bag Lecture Series will present “The Problems and Prospects of Community-Based Archaeology.”

In this virtual roundtable discussion, four archaeologists will discuss their current research projects and the various ways they consider and incorporate community engagement. It will explore best practices related to community involvement in archaeology and examine how community-based practices have changed, and continue to change, the fundamental nature of archaeological methodologies, pedagogy, and publication.

The panelists are:

  • Anna Antoniou, PhD Candidate in Anthropology at U-M;
  • Lisa Young, Lecturer in Anthropology at U-M;
  • Krysta Ryzewski, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Wayne State University;
  • Geoff Emberling, Research Scientist at the Kelsey Museum and Lecturer in Middle East Studies at U-M.

The discussion will be facilitated by Nadhira Hill, IPCAA PhD Candidate.
