VIRTUAL - 2nd Annual Holton Lecture: Archaeology from Space

August 23, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

This is an online event.

Lecturer: Sarah Parcak

Join us for a special virtual event featuring this year’s Felicia A. Holton Book Award winner, Dr. Sarah Parcak, discussing her book Archaeology from Space: How the Future Shapes our Past.

Writing about the Past: How to Find Your Voice and Become a Better Storyteller
It has become essential for archaeologists to engage with the broader public. More archaeologists and students of archaeology should write books and articles for the general public, but think they lack the necessary skillsets to do so, which is untrue. This talk will share the writer’s personal insights and story about how Archaeology from Space was conceived, written, and edited, and will share perspectives on how to interpret the past for the general public. It is hoped that the lecture will inspire more current and future archaeologists to take more risks with their public archaeological writings.
