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.
