Please Note: This brown bag is password protected.  If you did not receive the flyer to this brown bag but would like to attend, please contact the brown bag coordinators.  


In this brown bag, I will discuss my experiences as a California community college faculty member and researcher following my graduation from Stanford in 2007.  In this informal talk, I’ll discuss the pros and cons associated with teaching at a two-year school, and address some of the misconceptions, stereotypes, and prejudices that persist about pursuing an archaeological career at the community college level.


Dr. Nikki Slovak is an Anthropology faculty member at Santa Rosa Junior College in northern CA and a former Stanford graduate student (PhD, Anthropological Sciences, 2007).  Her research areas include the archaeology and bioarchaeology of the ancient Andes, stable isotope analysis, museum archaeology, and mortuary studies.
