Melanie and Karen are committed to providing you with fun, educational workshops and lectures either in person or online. They have participated in a number of panels that can be modified into a lecture or to lead a guided discussion on a variety of museum issues, anthropology or history conversations. The topics discussed on The Unusual History of Every Thing podcast can and will also be adapted into lectures.  

  

As a professor of anthropology, Karen has a number of lectures related to archaeology, physical anthropology and cultural anthropology that she presents to her students throughout the year. In addition to these lectures, Karen has also participated on panels at the Society for California Archaeology in a variety of topics including caring for Archaeological collections and Archaeological Site Stewardship. Karen is also part of a duo that lectures at San Diego County Archaeological Society every October with topics that combine Halloween themes, history and archaeology. Just recently they lectured on the Archaeology of Epidemics which you can listen to for free here: https://youtu.be/7g20iizzh3s.   

 

Melanie’s in-depth knowledge and expertise in cultural mythology, ancient history and in handling a variety of museum “disasters” over the years, makes her the perfect person to offer interesting and educational lectures and workshops. She has been brought in to several schools and conferences to share her knowledge and experience, and now she brings them to you!
