Digital Public Archaeology Reconsidered: Lessons From Michigan State University’s Campus Archaeology Program (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lynne Goldstein.

Since 2008, Michigan State University has had an official Campus Archaeology Program (http://campusarch.msu.edu) which trains students, engages with a varied public, and mitigates all ground-disturbing activity undertaken by the campus, regardless of whether it falls under state or federal law.

Reading, Writing, and Riots: Constructing Masculinity on an Antebellum College Campus (2015)

This poster integrates archaeological,...


Sustainability and Public Archaeology: Michigan State University's Campus Archaeology Program (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lynne Goldstein.

One major focus of my work has been establishing mechanisms to ensure that the program continues. Another challenge has been crafting ways to ensure knowledge about and participation in what we do. On a university campus, people come and go yearly, and within four years, your wonderful excavation or program will be part of the...
