Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Enrollment limited to: graduate students. Co-meets with ANTHR 4045 /ARKEO 4045 .

D. Bardolph.

How might archaeology contribute to a more humane world? Recognizing that archaeology is an inherently political activity, we will examine and actively debate some of the major ethical issues that confront practitioners navigating the complex responsibilities, roles, and praxis associated with archaeology. We will consider the multiple stakeholders in the archaeological endeavor—students, professional colleagues, public land managers, avocationalists, collectors, members of local communities, members of descendant communities, and so forth. Topics to be addressed include professional codes of archaeological ethics; equity and safety issues in archaeology; approaches to cultural resource and heritage management; the antiquities trade; and collaboration and community engagement. This course will involve active debate of ethical issues in archaeology, including case studies for the 2018 Society for American Archaeology Ethics Bowl.
