Professor: Joanna Casey

Fulfills the Archaeological Requirement for the Anthropology Major

AND

Integrative Requirement (INT)

Course Readings:

None.  Weekly readings will be available

Course Description:

How do archaeologists figure out what happened in the past?   The artifacts they dig up provide clues, but how do archaeologists know what those clues mean?  This course is about the ideas that frame archaeological research. Those ideas have changed dramatically throughout the more than 100 years of archaeology’s history, determining the questions that archaeologists ask about the past, the kinds of material remains they search for, and the answers they find acceptable.  The past takes on different forms when peered at through different theoretical lenses, so how can we know what really happened in the past, and why does it matter?  While most archaeologists get interested in archaeology because of the artifacts and excavations, it is the ideas that make them continue.

Course Description:

This course will introduce students to the empirical study of language and communication in context.  Using a cross-cultural approach, students will explore how norms and expectations for what are considered appropriate ways of talking and interacting (including things like gaze, spatial organization, hand gestures, and bodily positioning for example) differ across social events and cultural locales.  In fact, we will consider how such norms and expectations might help us constitute “identities” and “communities.”  Additionally, students will familiarize themselves with ethnographic and analytical methods in the study of communication, which they will apply to a short research project.
