Recommendations for Developing Harassment and Assault Free Archaeological Field Schools
March 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Instructors: Carol E. Colaninno & Shawn P. Lambert
Due to the nature and structure of field schools, enrolled students are particularly susceptible to harassment and assault. In 2018, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) released recommendations to help prevent sexual harassment and assault of women in academia. Though these recommendations are specific to higher education and exclusive to women, some can be modified and applied to the context of archaeological field schools. We review the NASEM’s recommendations with particular attention to those applicable to the field school setting and provide suggestions for making field schools safer and more inclusive learning environments for all students.
