ANTH 59 Who Owns the Past?

Archaeology reconstructs life in ancient societies, but its contemporary practice and disciplinary future are complicated by questions about ownership of the past.  This course will consider intellectual debates and cultural clashes over roles played by governments, cultural institutions, and indigenous peoples in archaeological inquiry.  We will also study ongoing controversies about the ethical treatment of archaeological remains, from ancient human bodies to artifacts, monuments, and landscapes transformed through human actions.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:SOC; WCult:CI

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
