Lourdes is currently finishing her bachelor's degree in archeology at the Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán in Mexico along with her thesis about the archeology of the body among the Maya culture. She is a native Spanish speaker with more than 10 years of continuous English learning. Her interests are gender and sexuality in prehispanic cultures and she is looking forward to a master's degree in the upcoming years.
Sydney is currently working on her master’s degree in archaeology at the University of Western Ontario. Her thesis will explore the nature and makeup of the archaeological cultural resource management (CRM) industry and its practitioners across select jurisdictions in Canada. Her analysis and exploration of the industry will generate a professional profile on this distinct cultural group, achieved through a current “slice in time” survey, and augmented by a practitioner sentiment survey. Sydney is excited about the opportunity to help achieve a more comprehensive view of CRM and its impacts on the archaeological heritage and looks forward to further research and industry analysis post-graduation and into her career.
