I’m on my way to Memphis to the SAA Annual Meeting to give a paper on the outreach work we’ve been doing on Carriacou: “Showing What We See” (Thursday, Apr. 19th – “Public Archaeology in the 21st Century” session). Very much looking forward to showing everything that we’ve been doing since 2007 – including the comic strip. It’ll be interesting to get some feedback; the VIA crowd thought it was a really interesting direction, and I’m hoping the SAA Public Archaeology Special Interest Group will too.
This will also be an opportunity for me to gather some reaction to my idea for my Palau Field Journal comic book. Hopefully there will be some interesting things for me to then talk about in my Comics Forum guest blog in June and my Comics Forum 2012 conference paper on comics and archaeology in November.
