Equity in the Academy and in Archeology

Author(s): Gwen Lexow

Year: 2018


Recent national media attention on issues of discrimination and harassment in the academy have generated robust discussion and inquiry into how to develop and sustain an environment that celebrates equity and equality and creates a culture where all can thrive professionally and personally. This presentation will sketch the broad contours of these conversations placing them in a national context and providing a framework to understand both institutional responsibilities and ethical imperatives. By outlining the nature and scope of Title IX and other civil rights mandates as they apply across the academy, this presentation provides a foundation for exploring the specific challenges of achieving equity in archeology.
