Archaeology and Ghost Hunting

Post  Dreki on Wed Feb 03, 2010 4:04 pm

Could I do something with Archaeology? And I'd love to do a bit about the Paranormal Investigations I've been on!

Archaeology would be great! I'd do a talk on Erich Von Daniken and some other woo-woo archaeology if I wasn't already doing two talks that both basically boil down to cultural anthro.

My suggestion would be to take something from pop culture, like Atlantis, or something, and just use it as a seed to expand upon, but that's totally just me it's your talk, so run with it. The paranormal investigations one would be great, too, to give a skeptical perspective on actual ghost hunts.

When you figure out what you want to do, please put your talks in the format:

Title
Brief Description
Speaker(s)/Moderator(s)
Date/Time of Event
Length of Event
Equipment Needed (laptop projector, PA system, etc.)

to make it easier for me to submit them all. I'm looking to submit everything before February 12th, the end of the second round of event submissions, so it would be awesome if you could get it worked out before then. If not, submissions go until the middle of March, but the earlier we get our stuff in the more likely we are to get good placement.

We have you covered for a projector. Sean and I will borrow one from work.

I have you down for Friday 10AM. I hope that's not too early. I want to see if we can organize all of these without overlapping each other so we can get them all filmed and put on YouTube.

If another time works better, just let me know, because I can always go back and alter it.
