Join us for Archaeology Day 2017, Saturday March 18th, 8:30 – 4:30 PM. The day will consist of 11 talks, including a Keynote Speech by Joel C. Janetski, and 2 poster presentations. Free breakfast and lunch included, open to the public.
New Developments in Anthropology – On The Horizon is a poster session hosted by Department of Anthropology, with introduction by Dana Lepofsky, Simon Fraser University. Potluck dinner provided by the UBC Anthropology Department and the Anthropology Graduate Student Association.
For this colloquium Wylie will be outlining a long-term research program that leverages work she has done on evidential reasoning and collaborative practice in archaeology. It consists of three interrelated projects that, together, constitute key elements of pragmatic and proceduralist account of objectivity as knowledge “fit for purpose”: knowledge that is empirically well-grounded in a non-foundational sense, that has survived critical scrutiny informed by relevantly diverse standpoints, and it is accountable to purpose. In this colloquium Wylie will outline what she has in mind as the point of departure for what she envisions as, itself, a collaborative venture.
