When humanity becomes the ideal and social strategy, it does not mean to close eyes for corruption and social practices which poison humanity. Typical is the case with archaeology. Some scientists like the author have become archaeologists based on previous experience. The author was a museum employee sent to excavations as a person responsible financially for them by representing the museum government institution in Bulgaria. She was known by the museum as a professional and an honest person. Three months in the field made her obtained those empirical qualifications that made her an excellent archaeologist in the next years although initially she did not want to have been an archaeologist (before the summer experience). However, archaeology is a field of psychotronic terrorism, corruption and crime and the fact that corruption embraces also American archaeology is a call for critical analysis and turns toward winning positive results. Such turn is impossible without critics and the case study of Rosemary A. Joyce is a great example to learn how in country of humanity like the USA the corruption can win in fields like archaeology.
R. Joyce’s name on the initial ad of TAG 2014 looks an absurd of culture and civilization. TAG supposes to promote humanity, science and opportunity the talented and hard-working people to succeed in archaeology despite the current corruption. A pilot research shows that Rosemary A. Joyce in 2011 and in 2012 was paid even for Associate Dean at University California (probably abt $50,000 -$70,000) beyond her professor salary over $100,000. What could be the reason for such position? The University of California is dedicated to science, while nothing in Joyce’s scholarly biography points to science. She is more like a woman, who through connections had occupied a professor seat at University of California in Berkeley and continued through connections to have grown abusing the non-for-profit organization with fake scholarly presentations and being organizers of sessions. Just think: this woman has an article about Girling girl and boying boy. The specialists-scientists will understand from this title that science was invaded by a lumpen-pseudoscientist who even cannot shape her thought in format of everyday thinking. The lumpen-writer wants to say that there are traditions for engendering female sex in girls and engendering man sex in boys. Her title in fact is not only non-sense but describing the ancient people like psychopaths who do not have any idea what their ritual mean. None of the ancient rituals girl girl, but en-female emerging woman to become as fast as possible an advance woman by making her emerging mother, sibling, housekeeper etc. However, in the head of academically educated pseudoscholars the words are just words, not a meaning and when they begin to use them, it becomes clear that they have fake education and fake professor positions.
There are very important reasons to make Rosemary A. Joyce a case study of 21st century academic corruptions. First by being included in TAG 2014 introductory session, the organizers of TAG has made her a successful model in archaeology and many similar or identical types of personality will enter archaeology because TAF say: it is OK in archaeology to be non-educated lumpen with fake knowledge. Second, this woman has in her social biography a blame of most innocent woman that has been breaching academic norms exactly in a moment and a context that described R. Joyce as a person who most aggressively has been corrupting academism by participating in books in which she does not have scientific right to participate but takes the place of real scientist, using her professor position to republish old books instead production of new scientific knowledge and even gaining administrative position which bring $50K in her pocket. Third, at the Annual Meeting of SAA in Sacramento (2011), Rosemary A. Joyce did not come to present her obviously fake presentation although was seen at the Meeting. It is clear that she saw authorities who would question her professionalism at the meeting. Instead being immediately fired from the University of California in Berkeley, for amoral non-ethical behavior at professional organization meeting which membership provides her with almost only real power to get administrative positions, she was paid even in 2012 as associate Dean at this university. That means, the university does not care what administrative leader have been doing at places where they should be examples for moral and professionalism.
Ideally, science is a personal contribution of people to society. Rosemary Joyce case is opposite: using science and society for personal enrichment and for corruption and for blaming, troubling and damaging other people and society. Not to have such cases, first we need to make a critical picture. And as many such pictures the society see and discuss, as less the science will be invaded by damagers of science and humanity.
We don’t need to be Royals in our society. We need to be humans.
However, disagree with the text, we may agree that Lorde’s Royals is really a nice song. Such nice “songs” in archaeology are still dreams. Although many young students in archaeology equally can sing: I will never be an archaeologists, not because I am not gifted and hard-working person, but because of the corruption in this field of societal social practices.
