Seminars

The Center for Comparative Archaeology sponsors an ongoing seminar for faculty and students on varied themes in comparative archaeological research on long-term social change. The seminar is led by a team that includes the Visiting Scholar, whose research theme provides its focus each year. It meets every three or four weeks through the entire academic year. It can be taken for credit as a complete graduate seminar by enrolling in ANTH 2536: Special Topics in Comparative Archaeology I (1 credit) in the Fall Term and ANTH 2537: Special Topics in Comparative Archaeology II (2 credits) in the Spring Term. Since the topic changes each year, the seminar can be taken for credit more than once. In 2018-2019 the seminar is led by Ben Raffield and Liz Arkush: Unseen People: The Archaeology of Slavery and Unfreedom. More Information >
