Equity, Transparency, Humanity: Building a Better System for Anthropological Research Funding
Anthropological research and careers run on grants and fellowships. In order to build a diverse and inclusive discipline that can effectively respond to our world’s many problems, we must ensure that research funding is being distributed equitably and thoughtfully. In this webinar, a panel of leaders in the movements for equity and inclusion in anthropology, and in anthropological research funding, will discuss the results of a major study of research funding in archaeology and anthropology. We’ll explore how funding agencies, academic programs, professional organizations, and individual anthropologists can build a more inclusive future for our discipline.
Presenter: Laura Heath-Stout (Stanford)
Panelists: Justin Dunnavant (UCLA) and Ayana Omilade Flewellen (Stanford) from the Society of Black Archaeologists; Sara Gonzalez (U Washington) and Ora Marek-Martinez (U Northern Arizona) from the Indigenous Archaeology Collective; and Fred Palm from the Social Science Research Council.
