In this episode of Anthropological Airwaves, we talk with Tiffany Earley-Spadoni (University of Central Florida) and Stefani Crabtree (Penn State) about digital archaeology, covering both its more humanistic and computational modes. Earley-Spadoni shows us how collaboration with local community stakeholders and colleagues abroad can produce rich digital narratives, allowing people to tell and hear stories about places of memory in multiple languages alongside rich multimedia content. Crabtree argues for the importance of archaeology for solving contemporary problems, drawing on her research with food-web modeling in the US Southwest, which has considerable implications for modern-day resource management and climate change mitigation. She also demonstrates that archaeologists need to think more expansively about collaboration, particularly with whom we collaborate, if we want the results of our work to matter for a broader audience.
