Greetings from Philadelphia,


Hoping all are well.


ISEAA has a few updates since our last email to the AASEAA list.


There are new Ban Chiang metals monograph reviews to report.


Bryan Pfaffenberger, a leading thinker in the Anthropology of Technology, focuses on the theoretical framework in the monograph suite in his open access review of 2A-2C in Advances in Archaeomaterials  https://doi.org/10.1016/j.aia.2021.08.001 .



Anke Hein, specialist in SW China, reviews 2A-2C in Current Anthropology  https://doi.org/10.1086/716840 . Those without institutional access can request a pdf from her at anke...@arch.ox.ac.uk



David Welch reviews 2A-2C in the Journal of Southeast Asian Studies   https://doi.org/10.1017/S0022463421000461 . Those without institutional access can request a pdf from David at dwe...@iarii.org



Elizabeth Hamilton and I published “The Metal Age of Thailand and Ricardo’s Law of Comparative Advantage” in Archaeological Research in Asia. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ara.2021.100305 This open access article extracts and highlights some key methodological and theoretical aspects of the metals monograph suite, and we think the article will be useful for class assignments.



The Ban Chiang metals monograph suite, Volume 2D, catalogs, https://www.upenn.edu/pennpress/book/16286.html  has been delayed due to a shortage of paper pulp because of all those packages we are having delivered during the pandemic. Recent estimates of availability are December or even early 2022. When there are opportunities to get 2D at a reduced cost, I will alert this list.


And finally a REMINDER that the deadline of December 1st is fast approaching for applications for the ISEAA EARLY CAREER AWARD. Guidelines are attached. Even for those who do not win the award, it is a great opportunity for early career scholars to introduce themselves and their work to the leading scholars on the selection committee.


Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving for those in the US, and for the holiday season overall!!
