The Next Generation Speaks Up at the AIA-NY Society’s Student Symposia
October 31, 2012
The AIA-New York Society organized and hosted a grad/post grad symposium called the “Next Generation Speaks Up” as its National Archaeology Day event. This event gave students from a range of NYC schools to come and present to a mixed audience of their peers, academics, and the general public. The presentations were varied, and included folks from NYU, various CUNY schools and a student from SUNY Buffalo. The presentations went quite well and covered a wonderful range of topics. Following the talks there was a reception for all.
AIA-New York Society President, Paula Lazrus, hopes this will become an annual event and provide a great forum for grad students to begin to engage in their own outreach efforts. The whole activity benefited from the generous support of one of the AIA-NY Society members and Friend, Louis Blumengarten.
In advance of the Institute's 2015 Working Conference for Educators: Building a Strong Future for Archaeological Outreach and Education the AIA is soliciting a series of one-page descriptions of existing archaeological outreach and education programs.
We began the first week with our second group of students by explaining the archaeology of Achill Island and touring the sites at Slievemore.
