Publishing - Heritage Voices 19

Trival Views of History, Anthropology and Archaeology.jpg

On Today’s episode, Jessica hosts a panel focused on publishing. The panel includes Dr. Lisa Hardy (Editor of one of the Society for Applied Anthropology’s (SFAA) journals, Practicing Anthropology), Sarah Herr (Editor of one of the Society for American Archaeology’s (SAA) journals, Advances in Archaeological Practice), Dr. Kathleen Van Vlack (Editor of the High Plains Society for Applied Anthropology’s (HPSFAA) journal The Applied Anthropologist), and Dr. David Martinez (Akimel O’odham, Associate Professor of American Indian Studies at Arizona State University). Unfortunately, due to some last minute technical difficulties, Lyle was unable to join the call as co-host and panelist. Also, we actually recorded this episode back in March, so you may notice that things we mentioned happened awhile ago, so sorry about all that. We talked about everyone’s experience with publishing, tips for those who are interesting in publishing, challenges with diversity in publishing, and where they would like to see publishing going in the future. These amazing editors look forward to working with you towards publishing in their journals!

Archworld I : Virtualisation for the Masses - Anarchaeologist - Episode 49

Bring yourself online..... 

The HBO drama Westworld has entered its second season, dealing with a robot revolt and what it means to be Artificial Intelligence and by extension, human. All against a backdrop of America's favourite cultural setting, the Wild West. Tristan uses Westworld to introduce his multi episode series on virtual archaeology and the importance of thinking about representation of archaeology; do we want a fun and engaging history that allows people to explore or should we let people "peek behind the curtain" in order to be more honest.

Crafting Company Policy for the Employee - CRMArch 139

Thanks for supporting the APN!

Archaeology Careers and Jobs.jpg

We started today's show talking about drive time again but with a couple different hosts - Sonia and Doug. But, it's really a discussion about employee welfare and how to craft company policy so that it doesn't damage that. Is it possible? Should companies do it? There are some differing opinions and we're interested in yours.

Tribal Collaboration on the Lower Colorado River - HeVo 18

Trival Views of History, Anthropology and Archaeology.jpg

What happens to a people when the river no longer flows to them? Or it flows, but no longer supports the associated plant and animal communities so important to their culture? What do they do about it? Today’s podcast features Nora McDowell, former Fort Mohave Indian Tribe Tribal Councilwoman and Jill McCormick, Historic Preservation Officer for the Quechan Tribe and the former Cultural Resources Manager and Archaeologist for the Cocopah Indian Tribe for 12 years. They talk about their collaborative efforts with other tribes in both the US and Mexico towards environmental, cultural, and spiritual restoration of the Lower Colorado River. We also talk about natural resources as cultural resources, improving tribal consultation and representation, and how to manage competing interests from various groups, as well as within a tribe.  

This episode is dedicated to Mr. Dale Phillips (1946 – 2016), Former Vice-Chairman, Cocopah Indian Tribe.  It was his concept, that is the basis for the creation of the Tribal River Vision project.  Mr. Phillips was a respected Tribal Leader, Bird Song singer, Spiritual and Cultural mentor who touched many lives both inside and outside of Indian Country.  His vision of a “Mighty Colorado River” that once again reached the delta was the inspiration of this work.  His love of both the cultural and natural world and the responsibilities of the Tribes to protect these entities are the guiding force for the vision of the future of the Colorado River.  We are honored to continue this work in his name and dedicated to seeing the Vision shared and realized.
— Ms. Nora McDowell and Ms. Jill McCormick

The Drive Time Dilemma - CRMArch 138

Drive time is always a hot-button issue in contract archaeology. Should you be paid going from the office to the town the work is in? Should you be paid if you take your own car? What about driving from your home to a local field project 30 min away? Should you be paid for that? We talk about these scenarios and more on today's episode. Please send us your feedback and opinions.

New York in 1911 and Learning from History - TAS 43

Beyond The History and Archaeology Headlines.jpg

Chris saw a video several months ago that really challenged his preconceived notions of what the past was like. That video was a promotional video about New York City shot in 1911. There is no commentary, it's not scripted, and it just looks like cut-together scenes of life in the big city in that year. It's fascinating. April and Chris spend most of the show talking about that video, what it means, and what we can learn from it. They also talk about the rephotography movement and other representations of the past.

Museum of Modern art's 1911 footage. Posted to share with others because of it's rarity and how interersting it is. Source: http://tinyurl.com/yd3tu938 I do not claim ownership of this, and I will not be making money from this video.

The Future of Conference Posters - ArchaeoTech 80

Archaeology and Technology.jpg

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.

Recording Archaeology - CRMArch 137

Archaeology Careers and Jobs.jpg

Other industries around the world record, either audio or video, presentations from conferences and at least make them available to their members or to those that bought a "virtual ticket". Archaeology is notably behind the curve on this but through the efforts of Doug Rocks-Macqueen and others we're getting there. On today's show we discuss the challenges and ethics behind recording and making available conference presentations.

Ancient DNA with David Reich - TAS 42

Beyond The History and Archaeology Headlines.jpg

Massive technological innovations now allow scientists to extract and analyze ancient DNA as never before, and genomics is emerging as important a means of understanding the human past as archeology, linguistics, and the written word. In his new book Who We Are and How We Got Here (Pantheon), David Reich describes how the human genome provides not only all the information that a fertilized human egg needs to develop but also contains within it the history of our species. Join Reich as he discusses how the genomic revolution and ancient DNA are transforming our understanding of our lineage as modern humans, and how DNA studies reveal a deep history of inequality—among different populations, between the sexes, and among individuals within a population. He examines how research contradicts the orthodoxy that there are no meaningful biological differences among human populations, at the same time using evidence provided by genomics and ancient DNA to show that the differences that do exist do not conform to familiar and often pernicious stereotypes. Reich, a pioneer in analyzing ancient human DNA, is a professor in the department of genetics at Harvard Medical School and an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

At the 2018 Society for American Archaeology meetings in Washington, D.C. in April, APN founder Chris Webster sat down with archaeogaming enthusiast Adam Spring to talk about Pokémon Go and whether it helped destroy historical and archaeological sites as was predicted in the summer of 2016 when it was released. They also talk about other augmented reality games and their potential impact on history and historical sites.
