The Kenyon-Honduras Program 1988-2019: Learning from the Past About Ourselves

Author(s): John Douglass; Ellen Bell; Samuel Connell

Year: 2019


This is an abstract from the "I Love Sherds and Parasites: A Festschrift in Honor of Pat Urban and Ed Schortman" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

Since the 1980s, the Kenyon-Honduras Program, under the leadership of Drs. Patricia Urban and Edward Schortman (P&E to us), has engaged students in the study of archaeology, anthropology, and life. Hundreds of students have been a part of the program over the past several decades. Being in the program helped us learn about archaeology from both a theoretical and pragmatic standpoint and, in the process, we learned about ourselves and what trajectories we would like to pursue in life. Our paper introduces the program affectionately known as the "P&E Show," discusses how our Honduras experiences affected us personally and professionally, and explores what we’ve taken away from it all. This introductory paper provides the background necessary to appreciate the myriad contributions highlighted throughout the session.
