Mentoring is one of the keys to success in the academic and professional world. It contributes to the acquisition of skills and knowledge, while providing needed socialization and personal support to ensure success in work and learning environments. Despite the science-backed advantages of effective mentorship, mentoring is a skill that is rarely taught. The goal of this seminar is to provide archaeologists with an introduction to the key principles of good mentoring and to define the roles and responsibilities of mentors and mentees. We will learn why mentoring cannot be equated to teaching, coaching, or advising. Participants will be provided with tools to create an inclusive mentoring environment and foster effective mentor-mentee relationships. We will also explore how mentees can identify potential mentors and enter beneficial, reciprocal mentoring relationships. The seminar is intended for both academic and non-academic archaeologists at any career stage who have little to no mentoring experience or who want to sharpen their mentoring skills.

Accurate identification of ceramic types is foundational to historical archaeology, given the ubiquity of ceramics on sites and the importance of ceramic change over time for establishing site chronology. There are a variety of different approaches to identification, emphasizing origin, decoration, or production method. This seminar will use a technology-based approach, teaching how to identify how an object was made, given the strong relationships between manufacture, and geographic and temporal variation. The seminar will cover the 4 main ceramic materials (coarse earthenware, refined earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain), outline the characteristics of the primary manufacturing techniques, and discuss broad trends in decorative motifs/techniques. This approach will provide participants with a toolkit for identifying wares they may encounter, based on key diagnostic features.

This workshop was created by the SAA Meeting Safety Committee in collaboration with Futures Without Violence to identify, address, and prevent sexual misconduct and bullying in archaeological practice. This is the second in a series of two seminars. In Part I, we discussed the role power dynamics play in sexual misconduct and bullying and ways to address and prevent it in the workplace. In this part, the group facilitators will lead the group through a series of prompted questions to explore power dynamics, responsibility, and accountability in their respective work environments and where the skills acquired in the first section can be implemented. Both sessions will include elements about self-care in order to support participants in discussing and facing these difficult topics in the workshop and beyond.
A recording of Part I of this seminar will be available for SAA members to view in the Online Learning Archive after October 12. Part I is not a prerequisite for Part II, but may be helpful for attendees.
77th Annual Meeting in Durham, NC (2021)
Update as of 10/20/2020
SEAC ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING
You are invited to the 2020 Business Meeting of the Southeastern Archaeological Conference on Friday, November 6, 2020, 3 p.m. eastern time. The meeting will be held via Zoom with space for 300 attendees provided courtesy of the University of Pennsylvania.
The goal is for the meeting to be no more than 75 minutes, so it will be shorter than usual. The focus will be on awards and resolutions, and brief reports from the officers. Full reports, full award citations and memorial and ceremonial resolutions, and reports from committees/task forces/networks are available here.
Because of the complexities of managing a large Zoom meeting, the hosts will be controlling the microphones of attendees. Our main goals are to provide information to SEAC members and to honor our award recipients. Please log in a few minutes early so we can start on time. We look forward, with hope, to seeing everyone in real life in Durham in 2021.
The 120th Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD, is currently scheduled for November 17-21, 2021. In response to the changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, AAA is reviewing the Call for Papers process. The Call for Papers is currently planned to launch by mid-March. Stay tuned for updates here on this webpage and via email!
The 2020 theme planned for St. Louis, MO, “Truth and Responsibility,” will be carried over to 2021 in Baltimore.

Digital technologies provide a powerful toolkit for researching, interpreting, and sharing archaeological knowledge with the public. The growing use of virtual technologies by archaeologists for these purposes is possible because of advances in computing power, expanding Internet access, and the maturation of free and open source software (FOSS). This online seminar will discuss best practices for integrating virtual applications into larger public archaeology work. A brief discussion of digital archaeology grounds an exploration of virtual reality (VR) and similar applications like augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR). The instructor will present best practices in terms of workflows, available software, and online platforms, followed by a case study exploring more than 15 years of work regarding the 1923 Rosewood Massacre. Ultimately, this seminar is oriented toward providing participants applicable knowledge useful for crafting strong proposals, tailoring work to diverse audiences, and involving stakeholders across the lifetime of projects.
