Diversity, Disability, and Ableism in Archaeology with Dr. Laura Heath-Stout

In this episode, hosts Emily Long and Dr. Chelsi Slotten are joined by Dr. Laura Heath-Stout to discuss her research on the ongoing issues of classism, disability, diversity, and ableism in archaeology. We dive into how these issues continue to challenge Cultural Resource Management and Cultural Heritage Management fieldwork and academia. Lastly, we take a look at how the field can be a much more accommodating place for those with visible and invisible disabilities.
