TAG USA 2011:
Archaeology of and in the Contemporary World


Dates: May 6-8, 2011

Location: International House, University of California, Berkeley

Sponsored by the
Archaeological Research Facility
,
University of California, Berkeley

Archaeology of the contemporary world; contemporary theory in archaeology; archaeology and its contemporary social context; archaeology, popularly associated with a dusty past, is thoroughly embedded in the contemporary world.

TAG Berkeley invites participants to freely imagine ways in which archaeological theory, practice, politics, and publication articulate with “the contemporary”. Whether looking at how archaeology is represented in popular culture, how archaeologists are examining the events and processes taking place around us today, or how archaeological examination of even distant pasts is bound up in the perspectives of our present lives, archaeologists are not of another time: we are here and now, and our discipline speaks to that time and place.

THE CALL FOR SESSIONS AND PAPERS HAS CLOSED.
