ANT 380 - African American Historical Archaeology


In this course, we look at how the identities of African Americans have been constructed over time by archaeologists, anthropologists, historians, geographers, and journalists. The course explores both regional and personal identities and the interrelationships between these two aspects of identity, and examines the effects of racism, ethnocentrism and sexism on identity construction. The course considers economy, historic environmental and geographical factors and how the construction of identity is affected by the experience of place. It concludes by examining contemporary race relations, the relationship to social scientists, and the public at large.
