Archaeological Perspectives on the African Diaspora
ANTH 303
Spring 2009 not offered
Crosslisting: ARCP 300, AFAM 302

This course will examine the material remains of the African diaspora on both the African and American continents. The archaeological case studies included will cover excavated and above-ground remains of artifacts, structures, and graveyards. From this archaeological perspective we will examine the societies from which enslaved persons were taken, sites of enslavement on the African and American continents, and free African American communities in the United States, including that of Middletown. Throughout the course we will scrutinize the way in which gender, religious, and racial identities have been constructed in relation to material culture within different diasporic contexts.
