The Archaeological Sciences of America Symposium will host an isotope workshop in conjunction with its October 2012 meeting at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tennessee. Panelists will include Larisa Grawe DeSantis (Vanderbilt), Corina Kellner (Northern Arizona), Kelly Knudson (Arizona State), John Krigbaum (Florida), and Bethany Turner (Georgia State). Each panelist will briefly (5-10 minutes) present how they see various isotope methods and/or systems contributing to their research in archaeology. The organized panel will then explore issues such as developing strong research questions using these methods, accessing materials available for study, and myriad details and complications that may arise using isotopic tools in archaeological research.
