On our second episode of The Explorers 50 Speaker Series, supported by Rolex, we look towards the “Seekers” on Wednesday, October 26th at 7pm. This episode brings together experts from the field of archeology who have looked to the past to uncover new truths about who we are today and where we are going. The panel discussion will be moderated by EC 50 2021 Honoree Juan Martinez and will examine the ways that exploration into the past helps us protect, understand, and celebrate the diversity of human experience.

This event is entirely virtual. Streaming live here on explorers.org, our YouTube Channel, and our Facebook Live  Wednesday, October 26th at 7:00 pm ET.

Speakers

Adolfo Iván Batún Alpuche

Dr. Batún obtained his bachelor degree in anthropological science archaeology from University of Yucatán, traveling after that to the United States to work in his master and Ph.D. degrees, focusing in the management of archaeological resources, at University of Florida. His professional development in the area of cultural heritage management and conservation started in Florida where he obtained experience working in cultural resource management (CRM) projects (2003-2010), going back to Yucatan where he was appointed as State historical archaeologist officer (2010-2013) and Chair of the historical state archives (2013-2015). Currently, Dr. Batun is a professor in Universidad de Oriente in Valladolid, Yucatán, and associate professor at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

George Bey

George Bey holds the Chisholm Chair at Millsaps College. He is a Maya archaeologist carrying out fieldwork in the tropical eco-systems of Yucatan, Mexico since 1984. He sees archaeology as a powerful tool for supporting cultural heritage and biological sustainability. To make this vision a reality he and his colleagues created the Kaxil Kiuic biocultural reserve. This reserve holds the ancient Maya city of Kiuic amidst 4,500 acres of protected dry tropical forest. In his role as president of this international non-profit he supports a wide range of programs, from excavation to community reforestation and jaguar conservation. He is dedicated to understanding the rise and fall of the Maya civilization while working in partnership with surrounding contemporary Maya communities and others dedicated to preserving the forest.

Alicia Colson

Dr Alicia Colson is an archaeologist and an ethnohistorian whose interests combine digital humanities, computing science, citizen science to take risks, challenge safety zones, and existing paradigms (intellectual, physical, social, and mental) to interact with the world rather than view it from a distance, or through social media.
