In June, The Society for Black Archaeologists (SBA), the Theoretical Archaeology Group, and the Columbia Center for Archaeology joined forces to present "Archaeology in the Time of Black Lives Matter." This panel discussion explores ways to engage with the insights and challenges of this moment in archaeological practice, including making sustainable systemic changes in the discipline. Topics explored include capacity building and community engagement, pedagogical and curricular strategies, and how to diversify and rethink research themes and the presentation of archaeological heritages. You can watch the full recording of the panel discussion here.
After the initial panel, participants gathered for a workshop geared towards creating a resource guide that would rest as the foundation of an an anti-racist archaeological praxis. This evolving resource guide will be updated periodically and includes helpful texts, scholarship/fellowship opportunities, archaeological and historic research links, and more. Access the full resource list here.
