This seminar explores the theoretical models and concepts that have shaped modern archaeology.  Students will examine the history of theoretical orientations in archaeology, and consider the variety of interpretive frameworks that guide contemporary research.  Readings and discussions will explore culture-historical, processual, post-processual, Marxian, Darwinian, feminist, cognitive, and indigenous perspectives and examine the politics of archaeological research.  This seminar is especially recommended for graduate archaeologists and undergraduate Anthropology and Archaeology majors.
