An Archaeology of Redress and Restorative Justice Webinar

October 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Archaeologists and heritage professionals whose work overlays histories of colonialism, exploitation, collective violence, and genocide are increasingly aware that they cannot simply take refuge in prehistory to avoid troubling pasts; nor is it sufficient to merely acknowledge historical wrongs. And yet scholars often struggle to identify ways that archaeological and heritage work can make a meaningful impact. In this webinar, we explore how archaeology can not only identify the legacies of inequity, injustice, and violence that have shaped historical and contemporary communities, but also to open the possibility of redress for the continuing systemic inequities these legacies reveal (i.e. environmental racism, racialized disenfranchisement, heritage erasure). Panelists will discuss how they blend archaeology and heritage work with principles of redress and restorative justice.

Panelists:

Mary Elliott, Curator of Slavery, Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC)

Sada Mire, PhD, Director, Horn Heritage Organisation

Kisha Supernant, PhD, Director, Institute of Prairie and Indigenous Archaeology, University of Alberta

Michael Wilcox, PhD, Associate Professor, Stanford University

Moderated by Margaret Bruchac, PhD, Coordinator, Native American & Indigenous Studies, University of Pennsylvania

CART captioning will be provided by Lori Stavropoulos.
