PSU Day of Giving

This year, PSU Anthropology is celebrating Giving Tuesday by joining in the PSU Day of Giving.

We are asking for donations to support summer experiences for our undergraduate and graduate students. Feedback from students tells us that summer research opportunities—in the form of field schools (for archaeology, bio and cultural anthropology) or travel for internships to work in museums or non-profit organizations—can truly be “life changing.”

Please consider making a donation of any amount ($5, $10, $50 or more!) towards our summer scholarship fund. We want to send as many of our students as possible to  practice their anthropology out in the world. Your support will make a big difference in the lives of our students!

Harney County Archaeology Roadshow & Cultural Crawl—June 29, 2019

The Archaeology Roadshow is going “on the road” again.  The final Roadshow of 2019 will be in Burns/Hines on June 29, 2019 from 10 am-3 pm at the Hines City Park. Our event is being held along with the Cultural Crawl—a celebration honoring local craft and the arts, funded by the Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Cultural trust. Together, the Roadshow and Cultural Crawl are a great opportunity to support heritage and local craft. There will be a panel of experts to identify any artifacts visitors bring to the event.

This event is free and open to all.

For more info, see the FB event page.
