Should there be scientific fields that exclude white academics? Elizabeth Weiss, a professor of anthropology at San Jose State University, has been embroiled in this question, over the status of native American archaeological and anthropological museum specimens. Under pressure from native American activists, she has faced harassment, ostracism, and denial of access to museum specimens essential for her research work. Should native American archaeology be the sole enclave of native Americans?
This webinar features Elizabeth Weiss, a professor of anthropology at San Jose State University in California and a faculty fellow at Heterodox Academy’s Center for Academic Pluralism.
The discussion is moderated by J. Scott Turner of the National Association of Scholars.
