Dans le cadre des 47ème rencontres de l’Annual Meeting of the Alaska Anthropological Association, Marine Vanlandeghem co-organise avec Caitlin Holloway (US National Park Service), une session sur les approches expérimentales et nouvelles techniques utilisées en archéologie en Alaska : “Learning to Replicate Past Practices, Replicating Past Practices to Learn: Experimental Approaches and New Techniques in Alaskan Archaeology“. Dans cette session, présenterons sept chercheurs et collaborateurs natifs affiliés à différents services et université américaines (National Park Service, Healy Lake Tribal Council, University of Alaska Fairbanks, University of Michigan: Museum of Anthropological Archaeology, College of Liberal Arts, Texas A&M University, Brevig Mission School, Tanana Chiefs Conference Incorporated).
This session seeks to bring together researchers working with experimental approaches to understand past lifeways and site formation processes. Topics can range from short to long term experiments, tests of new equipment, or application of new techniques or analyses within the field of archaeology. We encourage participation from multidisciplinary researchers focused on replication of past tool and weapon systems, food processing and butchery techniques, paleoenvironmental reconstruction, site formation and taphonomic processes, and incorporation of traditional knowledge systems in analyses and interpretation of the archaeological record. The goal of this session is to stimulate interest in reconstructive and experimental archaeology and to discuss key issues in the design and implementation of experiments (protocols, replication and reconstruction, statistical analyses, etc.). Discussions will provide resources to help guide archaeologists considering new techniques and experimentation in their research in Alaska. Furthermore, we encourage inclusive conversations of research findings and needs, avenues for public outreach, and the coproduction of knowledge in archaeology in Alaska.
We encourage participation from Indigenous Elders, Knowledge Keepers, and Alaska Native people to participate in this session and the discussion about cultural outreach activity and archaeology.
