Archaeology and Social Justice

By Meaghan Peuramaki-Brown 12 September 2019 @ 10:55am

I'm attending a webinar this afternoon on archaeology and social justice. Figured I would share the important reflection questions provided (as well as the associated reading list), as I often find myself thinking about/fretting over these issues:

What are the roles of knowledge and research and of my own professional role as an archaeologist in our society?

What is the relationship between my identity as an archaeologist and my identities within my local, national, and global communities?

What are my own bedrock values?

How do my values affect the work that I do?

How can I use my skills, training, and privilege to live my values?

How can I use my skills, training, and privilege to improve the world in which I live?

What can I do by myself?

What can I do with others?

What will I do?
