AIA-Spokane Society Hosts “Archaeology and the Humanities” for IAD


The AIA-Spokane Society, in conjunction with Gonzaga University, co-hosted a day-long conference, “Archaeology and the Humanities,” on International Archaeology Day.

The event featured short lectures on different archaeological periods/subjects (Greek, Roman and landscape archaeology) by 13 field archaeologists, ancient historians, and art historians from ten West Coast institutions. Within their talks, the speakers related their recent fieldwork, research, and pedagogy to the larger field of humanities, focusing upon the broader contributions being made by the discipline of archaeology towards understanding human interactivity and ideas across time and space.

Financial support from the AIA helped to sponsor a lunch for students and the speakers, providing undergraduates from four different universities with an opportunity to meet the visiting scholars. Nearly 100 people attended some or all of the lectures over the course of the day, a group that included many of our dedicated AIA community members.
