    An Introduction to Effective Mentoring in Archaeology

    When: September 30, 2021 1:00-2:00 PM

    Duration: 1 hour

    Group Registration: Free to SAA members; $89 for non-members


    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.

    Historic Ceramics Identification

    When: October 05, 2021 1:00-3:00 PM

    Duration: 2 hours

    Certification: RPA-certified

    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.

    Exploring Power Dynamics, Responsibility, and Accountability in Archaeological Practice: Part I

    When: October 12, 2021 2:00-3:00 PM

    Duration: 1 hour

    Certification: RPA-certified


    Pricing

    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. The group facilitators will use this, the first of two seminars, to inform the group on the role power dynamics play in sexual misconduct and bullying and ways to address and prevent it in the workplace. There will also be a Part II presented one week later, in which 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.

    In a world of viral tweets and social media influencers, the past is getting swept under the rug. The work of cultural resource management (CRM) firms is often regulated to gray literature, a checked box before breaking ground. Nevertheless, our efforts reveal powerful human stories with the power to inspire, to educate, to bring change. This webinar provides a virtual “bootcamp” that offers baseline training in the principles of storytelling, photography, videography, public speaking, and social media. Not only will participants leave with a better understanding of the benefits of meaningful public outreach in CRM, but the skillset to try it out on their own.

    Learning Objectives

    Understand the five principles of storytelling;
    Understand the mechanics of capturing quality photography;
    Understand the mechanics of capturing quality video;
    Learn how to give an informative and engaging presentation for a technical audience;
    Learn how to give a public talk for a general audience;

    Learn how to share content on social media.

    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.

    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.
