Posters at conferences haven't changed much over the last few decades...or ever, really. The poster is designed so the researcher can convey information to passersby and answer any questions they may have. That's a pretty easy thing to do in very different ways. On today's show Paul and Chris discuss various ways conferences can spice up the poster room and offer different types of interaction.
In April 2018 Chris Webster attended the Society for American Archaeology Meetings in Washington, D.C. Today's episode contains segments recorded in the poster room and the exhibit hall.
Chris participated in a forum on virtual and digital ethics at the 2018 Society for American Archaeology annual meetings in Washington, D.C. in April. On today's episode, Chris and Paul talk about the forum and what virtual and digital ethics actually mean for archaeologists.
We also include a few select recordings from the conference.
On today’s episode, Chris and Paul discuss an article (linked below) from the Society for American Archaeology’s Advances in Archaeological Practice regarding digital extensions to physical museum exhibitions. We get into the weeds on this and discuss the future possibilities of digital museums.
