NON-ACRA EVENT: Examining the Role of Diversity and Inclusion in Arizona Archaeology

  • 11/18/2020
  • 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
  • Virtual

The Arizona Preservation Foundation is conducting a webinar on Wednesday, November 18 addressing diversity in the state's archaeology as a part of their Arizona Preservation webinar series. Examining the Role of Diversity and Inclusion in Arizona Archaeology will be held at 1:00 pm Arizona time (3:00 pm Eastern). 

From the Arizona Preservation Foundation:

This Arizona Preservation in Place webinar confronts the issues of bias, cultural justice, objectivity, race, and racism in Arizona archaeology today. The session will feature an introduction by William White on archaeology’s whiteness problem followed by a question-focused discussion with a diverse sample of Arizona’s professional Native, Black, Hispanic, and White archaeologists.

The goal of the session is to bring awareness to different Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) perspectives, to the role of objectivity in archaeology, to the profession’s traditional bias towards a white Euroamerican perspective, to how the lack of diversity in the field does and does not affect what gets preserved or researched, and the effects that history and archaeology are interpreted in Arizona with the hope of building trust.
