KwaZulu-Natal Museum sponsors prizes for Archaeology Student Development Conference (SDC) 2021
Kelita Shadrach, WITS PhD Candidate and SAASC secretary with prizes for the conference donated by the KwaZulu-Natal Museum
The Southern African Archaeology Student Council (SAASC) hosts its annual Student Development Conference (SDC) in June 2021. Although their pre-COVID Workshops were in-person events, the pandemic has prompted them to switch to an online event. During the month of June, archaeology students and researchers who have registered for the SDC will have access to lectures, practical activities, and assignments online. The content and activities provide enriching content and participatory learning experiences. Following each lecture, students will complete a practical activity, quiz or essay, which they will submit online for review by SAASC and their workshop presenters with exciting prizes up for grabs, including some donated by the KwaZulu-Natal Museum.
The prizes include museum branded goodies and copies of the latest issue of the journal South African Humanities as well as a set of books recently published by the museum. Dr Blundell from the Human Sciences Department at the KZN Museum handed over the “goody” bags to Kelita Shadrach who is the secretary of the SAASC on the 28th May while visiting Wits to conduct archival research.
