On May 10th we will hold the first session framed in the PAG initiative. It will take place at the VI JIA, a congress for young researchers in Barcelona (Spain). Organized by Gemma Cardona and Jaime Almansa, it will address the role of public archaeology in times of crises. A series of young researchers from 8 nationalities will show different approaches to the topic, divided in two lines:
-The use of archaeological heritage as a resource for development. Dealing with the valorization of archaeological sites, or their use for economic development.
-The impact of archaeology in contemporary society. Addressing the different ways archaeology engages society and vice versa.

The session will hopefully be streamed at JAS Archaeology Ustream channel from 8:00 to 13:30 GTM and you will be able to follow it on twitter with the hastag #pubarch and we hope to include your comments and thoughts during the debate.
