Have you ever wondered about the ethical questions facing archaeologists in the world of today? How do archaeologists work with indigenous communities; what are the political implications of archaeologists findings; what can be done to protect the archaeological record against looting and the sale of antiquities? The Undergraduate Seminar in Archaeology discusses the history of American archaeology to understand these ethical questions and to discuss major changes in theoretical perspectives. Students will also learn about the process of doing research in archaeology and professional skills. This class is geared toward seniors interested in archaeology, who have some background in the field. Grades are based on participation in seminar discussions and two written assignments (an annotated bibliography and a research design). Discussions will be based on readings from "Skull Wars" by David Hurst Thomas and course pack materials.
