(Dis)Connectivity in Archaeology Dealing with the different aspects and areas of archaeology that sometimes seem fragmented and disconnected.
Archaeology, by its very nature, seems fragmented and delineated. We see this in the ways in which Academia is dichotomously placed at odds with commercial archaeology. Both of which are separated again from community archaeology. This separation resonates from a deeper structure, one of hierarchical knowledge, that the past is somehow “unlocked” by “those who know” and that what ails the world today is just the “right facts” said by “the right person”. This continues the focus in the same cycle of ignorance and knowledge without any disruption to the form of the knowledge creation or mediation. While many people would agree with the need for change, the steps to that fundamental shift are murky or nebulous and not readily talked about.
Mutual Aid/DIY Archaeology How to collaborate and build in the ability for others to assist with your projects and goals and how the reliance on large institutions within archaeology can be decentralised.
Often faced with little or no budgets, and high expectations, many projects rely on getting the right people to volunteer. Is there be a better way for people to interact and assist one another that creates collaborative spaces and outcomes? What would the blueprints be for this way of working together and what steps can we take to begin to form a practice of partnership, informally, and in the spirit of aiding one another? Are there ways to promote the informal creation of materials and methodologies that don’t rely on the rubber stamp of an institution?
