Message from the President

January 2021

Because of the continuing risk of community transmission of the COVID-19 virus, SAR’s campus remains closed until public health authorities deem it safe for us to resume in-person events.

In March 2020 we transitioned from live events to a robust schedule of online offerings that include behind-the-scenes access to our scholars, artists, and collections.

Our online events have given us new ways to share innovative content that illuminates topics of broad public concern.  Online platforms allow us to serve our longstanding members as well as a growing global audience. With challenge comes opportunity.

Although we look forward to the day when we will again be able to meet face-to-face, I hope you will join us as we pursue SAR’s important mission by electronic means.

Michael Brown, President of SAR

The Equitable Transformation of Communities: A Conversation with John Arroyo

The Equitable Transformation of Communities: A Conversation with John Arroyo

John Arroyo, SAR’s 2018–2019 Mellon fellow, grew up in a largely Mexican and Mexican American community in East LA. Even as a kid, he was thinking about urban issues and the diversity and future of communities like his. He is now a planner who incorporates a humanistic perspective into his work, which allows him to make connections between urban issues, art, and the social sciences.

A Healed Greenwood: Lessons in Restorative Justice Archaeology from Tulsa, Oklahoma

“We began the class with an exercise in humility: writing down our thoughts and beliefs about Greenwood, and comparing that with broad assumptions, rumors, and questions.” Hear from SAR Anne Ray intern, Emily Santhanam, about her experience in the fall 2020 virtual in-depth course Unearthing Violence: Archaeology in the Aftermath of the Tulsa Race Massacre and learn how you can download the recorded course sessions.

Summer Scholar Colloquium: Nicholas Barron Brings the History of Anthropology into the Present

Summer Scholar Colloquium: Nicholas Barron Brings the History of Anthropology into the Present

In November 1981, anthropologists and tribal representatives gathered on the Pascua Pueblo Yaqui Reservation in southern Arizona for the 89th International Symposium, hosted by the Wenner-Gren Foundation. Although this obscure conference may have been relegated to a footnote in the history of anthropology and the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Nicholas Barron, SAR’s 2020 William Y. and Nettie K. Adams summer scholar, argues that its story helps us to better understand consequential, ongoing political processes and Indigenous histories.
