In the coming month, the PCMA Seminars will focus on collaborative archaeology and heritage studies. The first lecture in the “Heritage Month” series will be Methodologies for Community Archaeology: Reflections from Egypt and Sudan presented by Dr. Gemma Tully.
The aim of the “Heritage Month” organized by Dr. Tomomi Fushiya (PCMA UW) is to introduce archaeologists and students to different approaches and practices of collaborative archaeology and heritage studies. With leading researchers and practitioners active in North Africa and Near East as guest speakers, the lecture series provides ideas about how community engagement can be designed, how collaboration with local communities enhances archaeological research, why it is important to think about the past from a local perspective, and why collaborative archaeology is so important today.
Dr. Tully’s talk will address the challenges of developing standardised methodologies for community archaeology, which can respond to the ever-shifting needs of both stakeholders and archaeological facilitators in a range of contexts. The discussion will approach these issues from a theoretical perspective before moving on to consider some practical examples from Egypt and Sudan.
