COSWA Corner

Katherine A. Spielmann


COSWA-sponsored SAA symposium--COSWA is sponsoring its first symposium at the upcoming SAA meetings in April. The topic is Women and Publishing in Archaeology. The symposium will take place Friday afternoon, April 12, and will feature papers that discuss gender issues in academic publishing in general, and in archaeology in particular. Other papers discuss strategies that women in archaeology have pursued through their careers. The session will provide an opportunity for discussion and comments from the audience.

Women's Network Reception--The annual Women in Archaeology cash bar reception at the SAA meeting will follow immediately after the Women and Publishing symposium on Friday afternoon, beginning at 4:00 p.m. This year the reception will be organized to facilitate networking among women sharing similar topical and areal interests.
