The Forensic Science and Anthropology Field School is an intensive, three-week course. Students participate in, from the perspective of multiple disciplines, the resolution of a mock medicolegal death investigation from crime scene discovery to courtroom testimony.
Dear AAPA Members: Our Knoxville meetings are fast approaching! We are pleased extend the online registration deadline (and lower registration rates) to March 20th this year.
May 21-June 14, 2013. Albania’s magnificent archaeological site at Butrint National Park is the primary location for Utica College’s tenth annual Forensic Anthropology Field School course, which also includes visits to the Acropolis in Athens as well as Dracula’s Castle and his birthplace in Transylvania. The field school is open to non-credit participants; no previous experience is required. Undergraduates and graduate students may enroll for six credits at either level.
Wednesday, April 10 2-5pm in 300B (**not 1:00 PM as in AAPA Program). The American Association of Anthropological Genetics (AAAG) will offer a workshop on “Genomics and Anthropology in the Classroom” at the AAPA meeting in Knoxville. This workshop will provide participants with strategies for teaching next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, concepts, and studies in anthropological classes. The workshop will target a non-technical audience, and will feature speakers consisting of investigators directly involved in genomic research and educators who have integrated such research into their teaching regimens. This session has the potential to benefit anyone teaching in biological anthropology.
Saturday, April 13 2pm-4pm in 301B. The American Association of Anthropological Genetics (AAAG) will hold a panel on Postdoctoral Training in Anthropological Genetics at the AAPA meeting in Knoxville. This panel aims to provide doctoral students interested in evolutionary anthropology and population genetics with a general introduction to postdoctoral training. Experts from across the field of anthropological genetics with different postdoctoral experiences will discuss several topics, including choosing and planning the postdoctoral training, maintaining the “right” work-life balance, and transitioning into a faculty position.
