This week the Regional Educational Technology Network (RETN), the Center 
for Research on Vermont's public-access television partner, will 
broadcast two Center-sponsored programs:

(1) "New Perspectives on the Peopling of Vermont," which was organized 
and moderated by Vermont State Archaeologist Giovanna Peebles and 
includes the presentation of several papers:

        "Recession of the Laurentide Ice Sheet Across Vermont: Newly 
Exposed Landscapes for Vermont's Earliest People" by Stephen Wright, 
University of Vermont (UVM) Geology Department;

        "Vermont's Earliest Pioneers: New Glimpses into Vermont's 
Paleo-Indian Occupations" by Francis "Jess" Robinson, UVM Consulting 
Archaeology Program and Vermont Archaeological Society;

        "Deep Time in Wobanakik: A Sovereignist Approach to Peopling the 
Dawnland" by Frederick Wiseman, Abenaki Nation and Johnson State College.

The program, which runs for two hours, can be viewed on Comcast Cable on 
Channel 16 (both North and South) as follows:
        
        Monday, July 7, 2008 at 11 A.M.
                        repeats at          8 P.M.
                        repeats at          midnight

The program was originally presented as part of "New Discoveries and 
Current Issues in Vermont Archaeology," a symposium honoring the legacy 
of James B. Petersen (1954-2005), UVM Professor of Anthropology, which 
was held at the University of Vermont on November 3, 2006. The day-long 
event was cosponsored by the UVM Anthropology Department, UVM Center for 
Research on Vermont, UVM Consulting Archaeology Program, Vermont Agency 
of Commerce and Community Development, and Vermont Archaeological 
Society. For a detailed description, please visit the Center's Web site

Nutrition and Food Sciences, University of Vermont (UVM), with 
additional remarks by Montserrat Almena-Aliste (Nutrition and Food 
Sciences, UVM) and Lee Corbett (Graduate Student, Geology, UVM).

The program, which has a runtime of 1:12, can be viewed on Comcast Cable 
on Channel 16 (both North and South) as follows:
        
        Wednesday, July 9, 2008 at 11 A.M.

                            repeats at           midnight

The program, which was cosponsored with the Friends of Special 
Collections, was originally presented as #212 in the Center's ongoing 
Research-in-Progress Seminar Series on April 10, 2008. For a detailed
