2017 Hyatt and Cici Brown Lecture in Archaeology Announced
SHIFTING CONTOURS OF ARCHAEOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE IN COLONIAL CONTEXTS
Professor Michael S. Nassaney
Department of Anthropology
Western Michigan University
Narratives about the past are never divorced from the social contexts in which they are created. Colonial contexts have been especially subject to political influence when they involve descendant communities, directly or tangentially. Archaeology at Fort St. Joseph, an 18th century mission-garrison-trading post complex in southwest Michigan, illustrates recent changes in our understanding of colonial relations.
