PEMSEA Panel 6: The Future of Southeast Asian Archaeology in the US
Panel 6: The Future of Southeast Asian Archaeology in the US
Date & Time: September 13, 4pm HST / 7pm PST / September 14, 10am Philippine Time
Southeast Asian archaeology programs are underrepresented in the US higher education system. Although SE Asian groups now comprise one of the largest immigrant groups in the country, only five institutions have a distinctly Southeast Asian archaeology program. In this panel, we bring together early- and mid-career US-based archaeologists to discuss ways to strengthen SE Asian archaeology and to help address issues of access, gender disparity, and representation. The panelists will also talk about how their respective research in SE Asia facilitate the inclusion of SE Asian archaeological observations to archaeological theory and method.
