Comments
Historical archaeology studies material culture, in combination with written documents and oral history, to piece together a clearer and fuller understanding of our past. Students of this course will learn how to interpret artifacts and archival materials and how these can both conflict and complement one another in research of the past. The course is ┐New World┐ focused and students will analyze multiple data types and assess their usefulness in reconstructing historical change in the Americas and the Caribbean during the colonial age. Historical archaeology can contribute to our understanding of the history of identity - be it race, class, gender, or ethnicity - and how this history affects us today. The class will also evaluate the merit of pseudo-archaeological phenomena in television, film, and other media. This course meets the Theoretical/Problem-Oriented requirement. Note: This course does not automatically populate in HUB as theoretical/problem course. Please email the Undergraduate Coordinator to request the course be used to fulfill this requirement.
