|講 題||Community archaeology, indigenous archaeology, slow archaeology: Uncovering the past with Pacific Islanders|
|講 者||James Flexner （雪梨大學副教授）|
|演講簡介||Archaeologists working in formerly colonised lands have developed a range of terminologies to describe their relationships with descendants of First Peoples. The language of ‘indigenous archaeology’ and ‘community archaeology’ has become widespread in anglophone literature during the last 20 years or so. But as these terminologies become more common, they begin to mask the complexities of archaeology done with and for marginalised groups of people. In many cases, understanding the ways that something resembling ‘community’ is expressed in local vernaculars (language but also arts, dance, cuisine) will be important to refining our use of such terms, particularly as close partnerships with living indigenous Pacific communities becomes key to the future of research in the region. At the same time, emerging approaches to archaeological practice, such as ‘slow science’ or slow research provide alternative concepts to help us reconsider and reconfigure collaborative ways of understanding the past.|
