The graduate seminar is a required course for all graduate students in
Archaeology, and is open to other students in anthropology and in
other departments who are interested in the history and theory of
archaeological practice. ANTH P500 will expose students to the
historical and theoretical foundations of contemporary anthropological
archaeology. The course will briefly cover major events and theories
in the subdiscipline during the early to mid twentieth century before
focusing on recent paradigms and contemporary archaeological thought.
Regular discussions and extensive readings are required components of
this class. Students are expected to attend all classes, to
participate, and to be prepared. In addition, one major research paper
(20-25 pages long) and at least one debate presentations will be
required during the course of the semester.
