02/09/2022 1:30 PM 02/09/2022 2:00 PM America/New_York Andover Peabody Institute of Archaeology Webinar - Diggin' In Series

Wednesday, February 9th, at 1:30 p.m. EDT: Join us for Season 4, Episode 2 of the Peabody Diggin’ In series, “When It's Not About You: Heirs and "Experts" in the Study of Non-Eurocentric Pasts,” with guest speaker, Dr. Heather MacLeod-Leslie.

The past two and a half decades of researching the archaeological heritage of Atlantic Canada’s African Diaspora peoples and working for the Mi’kmaw Nation in Nova Scotia has yielded some critical teachings for me as a professional archaeologist. As a white archaeologist, these experiences have taught me lessons at least as important as those learned in the university classroom. In this presentation I will share thoughts on some of those lessons about academic privilege and propriety, interpretation and story-telling, sharing power and acknowledging and coping with the legacies of Eurocentric biases in archaeological interpretations. Each day, I hope to do archaeology better and more honorably, but each day is still a chance to learn more. Please sign up for this webinar at our new online registration page.
