The Public Anthropology Conference (PAC) is an annual student run conference at American University in Washington DC. The theme of this years conference is Scholarship and Resistance and it will take place this upcoming weekend, November 3-4. Chelsi Slotten, who is a PhD student at American, will be attending and representing the podcast. If you want to come meet one of us in person, you have several options. You can always hope to run into her around the conference, OR you can come to one of her presentations!
Chelsi will be presenting in two panels on Saturday. The first presentation entitled “Influencing the Conversation: Podcasts as a Medium for Archaeological Communication” at 9am in MGC 203. If you’re interested in how we as archaeologists can use podcasts to engage with the public this is the presentation for you! She will also be giving a workshop on photogrammetry at 1:45 in MGC 245. If you’ve ever wanted to know what photogrammetry is and how it works you should join this interactive workshop.
Attendance at the conference is free and open to the public, so we’d love to have you stop by for as many sessions as you’d like to attend. You can check out the full lineup of presentation online here.
