About the event
Curious about the human history of the Susitna Watershed?
Join the Susitna River Coalition as we welcome Dr. Kathryn Krasinski in this virtual event. With 20 years of archaeological field experience in Alaska, Dr. Krasinski will discuss her research documenting the oldest archaeological sites that scientists currently know of in our watershed. Dr. Krasinski's talk will focus on her work in the Susitna watershed with an emphasis on Talkeetna area sites.
Dr. Krasinski is an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at Adelphi University in New York, but has completed 20 field seasons studying sites in Alaska. Her primary research interests include hunter-gatherer subsistence, human diasporas, ice age extinctions, community anthropology, zoo archaeology and taphonomy. She holds three Anthropology degrees: including a Ph.D. from the University of Nevada Reno, an M.A. from the University of Alaska Anchorage, and a B.A. from New York University.
Bring your questions as we explore archaeological sites in our watershed and deepen our understanding of this place we call home.
