After 19 years in the capable hands of Karen Carr (Associate Professor Emerita, Department of History, Portland State University), the Archaeological Institute of America, Portland Society has a new president and a new home! My name is Tom Landvatter, Assistant Professor of Classics at Reed College, and I took over as president the AIA Portland Society this summer. I am excited to take on this responsibility and bring the community an exciting series of archaeological lectures each year. All lectures will now be on Reed College’s campus (3203 SE Woodstock Blvd) in SE Portland. We have five lectures lined up for 2016-2017; a full schedule will be posted soon. Also check in on this blog for information about other archaeological lectures/events in the area, as well as just general archaeology news.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in the coming year!
