Abstract

We congratulate Lynley Wallis for raising issues central to the future health of archaeology in Australia. While Wallis focuses on the repercussions for archaeology as a discipline, the issues she raises are wide-reaching. Here, we discuss the wider environment in which archaeology is enmeshed, focussing on how research analytics are changing behaviours in the humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) sector, how these metrics inform global university rankings, and how changes in government funding are placing universities under extreme stress – and whether we can do anything about it.
