Am looking forward to the Whistler meeting of the Canadian Archaeological Association this weekend. On the early Greyhound tomorrow. Participating in Andrew Martindale and Natasha Lyon’s excellent session on Community-involved Archaeology http://caacommunityarchaeology2013.wordpress.com/, which is being chaired by George Nicholas.
I’m talking about work I’ve done with Pete Insole and University of Bristol on the Know Your Bristol project http://www.bristol.ac.uk/public-engagement/events/know-your-bristol/; University of Local Knowledge, with Suzanne Lacy, Knowle West Media Centre and University of Bristol; and the current Productive Margins Project, a huge, interdisciplinary project hosted by University of Bristol. I’m talking about the productive tensions around media, aesthetics, ethics and community-involved archaeology.
