Preservation and the CRM industry should be finding ways to address inherent bias against historically underrepresented communities, especially as it relates to identifying and evaluating properties in the built environment and historical archaeological resources.
Frequently used research and outreach methods that CRM practitioners employ often do not effectively consider or reach underrepresented communities. Why is this? What are we missing? How can we do better? This webinar will provide strategies to answer these questions and more.
Speakers will discuss provide case studies in which outreach is reframed to successfully consider the history and culture of historically underrepresented communities. Discussion will come from a panel representing a variety of lenses – academic field schools, not-for-profit preservation organizations, and CRM practitioners.
This webinar will be the first in a series hosted by ACRA that explores effectively addressing historically underrepresented communities in historic preservation during regulatory processes and how to identify these communities and to engage in a meaningful manner.
Understand strategies for the identification of historically underrepresented communities within a project area during the scoping process.
Understand the barriers for reaching historically underrepresented communities to engage within the regulatory process.

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.
