Are you ready for the Spring meeting of the Oklahoma Anthropological Society? It is coming up on April 20th in Norman, with a wonderful theme: "OAS - A is for Anthropology". Program and meeting details are available here: OAS Spring Meeting Agenda
Featured speakers include a number of OU professors and grad students: Lauren Cleeland, Susan Vehik, Patrick Livingood, Asa Randall, Holly Andrew, and Bonnie Pitblado. Their topics range widely: parasites, gender relations, politics, climate change, and collaboration between professional and citizen archaeologists. Talk about relevant!
Also, the Archaeology Department at the Sam Noble Museum has a new blog: SamNobleArchaeology. Currently the blog is focused on a major project to inventory and rehouse collections from the Spiro mound site, with the help of a generous grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. Watch for updates, especially after mid-May when our undergraduate interns have finished writing a series of entries on Spiro artifacts.
