Nathan and I are excited to bring you all the happenings at the Society for American Archaeology annual conference this week in sunny rainy Vancouver, BC. We traveled here from Binghamton, NY with several other graduate students and faculty. We will be telling you about our experiences at one of the largest archaeology conferences in the world, from the sessions we sit in on, the posters and papers others in our department are giving, to our personal experiences navigating the conference world as a graduate student.
Nathan will be attending working groups and panels dealing with queer archaeology and gender/sexuality and the archaeology of Paleolithic Europe. I will be attending sessions on government archaeology, cultural resources management during disasters, and digital archaeology. We’re excited to be able to meet and make connections with a wide variety of leading and up-and-coming scholars in our fields, plus share the experiences of our Binghamton colleagues attending or presenting in sessions about the archaeology of the Southwest, South America, the Mississippi Basin, and GIS and so many more areas of study!
We’ll be updating periodically throughout the rest of the week, so stay tuned!
