Subject: Radical Archaeology Forum

                       RADICAL ARCHAEOLOGY FORUM

The Radical Archaeology Forum was founded at the TAG 1996 at Liverpool last
December in a meeting attended by over 100 conference delegates. The need
for this initiative emerged from the realisation that there is no
organisation, journal or Forum of any kind for those of us on the Left in
Archaeology to come together. As far as we can see, every other academic
discipline has some kind of formal expression of the wider political
culture of the Left. We feel that there is the intellectual and political
space for such an initiative but we have no prescriptions on the particular
form it should take.

The Radical Archaeology Forum is intended to be a non-sectarian
international organisation for socialists, feminists and anti-racists
within archaeology. It would encourage critical analysis and debate on
issues of class, gender, race and the environment, and hegemonic discourses
and practices such as nationalism, colonialism, neo-colonialism and
imperialism. It also intends to raise issues of academic and broader
disciplinary ethics and politics and  employment issues and relationships.
It aims to integrate theoretical debate and critique with  practical action
and activity and form alliances with other groups and movements within the
broader spectrum of the Left. The Radical Archaeology Forum was founded
within the academia but it aims to move beyond it and cut across boundaries
between academic and non-academic archaeologists and between theoreticians
and fieldworkers, by facilitating communication with other groups and
networks.

As founding members of the initiative we welcome and encourage debate on
both, its agenda and its organisational form. At present our intention is
to adopt a loose organisational structure and encourage colleagues who feel
the same need, to suggest and experiment with different structures and
formats. We plan a series of workshops and meetings in British and
International Conferences and we have set up an internet discussion list
and a conventional mailing list. We are also set up a Web page and there
are thoughts for a newsletter and possibly for a journal. Contact one of us
if you want to be included in the lists, or play a more active role in this
initiative. We are also keen to hear from all interested colleagues views,
ideas and issues to be raised.

If you want to join our internet discussion list, send the command:
