How many out there have read the new issue of the digital SEAC newsletter? The generation gaps discussed in the interview with the New South owners is very interesting and it’s led me to wonder what others think about this distinction. Like any good archaeologist, I’m fascinated by the temporal dimension of social action!
What do you think?
* Is the ‘millennial’ archaeological experience in the Southeast drastically different than the ‘baby boomer’ experience?
* If so, is this a good or bad thing?
* What does such a gap mean about the projects we pursue in school? Or, what about our decisions on whether or not to pursue a secondary degree?
* Are we putting too much stock in these generational distinctions?
* (… and for good measure…) Are the gender discrepancies experienced by earlier generations still an issue for the upcoming millennial set?
