Archaeologist Patty Wells brings a personal perspective to a discussion of knowledge mobilization in her academia and public life. She will present a brief journey through the forces in academia that influenced how she learned to communicate and listen in order to better understand how peoples lived in the past. It is her hope that this historical perspective will show students in the early years of their academic careers that the knowledge they communicate will have been shaped by traditions that both limit and expand understanding.
