Watch it now! Fugitive Archaeological Spaces, the next installment in the monthly series From the Margins to the Mainstream.

Fugitive Archaeological Spaces from Wenner-Gren Foundation on Vimeo.

Over the past year, we have seen renewed organizing amongst Black and Indigenous heritage professionals as well as the emergence of new collectives globally. These efforts have led to new initiatives around capacity building, community engagement, and decolonizing research methodologies. In this panel members of these new and emerging organizations will discuss their genesis, initiatives, as well as challenges and opportunities associated with empowering their communities in archaeology and heritage preservation.

Panelists:

Nathan Acebo, PhD, Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow in Critical Mission Studies, University of California, Merced

Lewis Borck, PhD, Assistant Professor at New Mexico Highlands University and a founding member of the Black Trowel Collective

Patricia Marinho, PhD, Archaeologist, Technical Advisor for Quilombola community, and a member of Rede de Arqueologia Negra

Jeannette Plummer Sires, Curator of Archaeological Assemblages at the British Museum and a founding member of the European Society of Black and Allied Archaeologists

Moderated by Justin Dunnavant, PhD, Academic Pathways Postdoctoral Fellow at Vanderbilt University and Co-founder/President of the Society of Black Archaeologists
