Course Description

The course will provide students with an overview of the ways that archaeology engages with non-academic stakeholders, including northern indigenous peoples, northern communities, interest groups and the public. Issues will be explored through detailed case studies of collaborative projects. Topics will include indigenous archaeologies, community-based archaeology, public archaeology and interpretation of archaeological data to the public in the media and in museum contexts. The important relationship between indigenous groups and museums will also be examined, focussing on repatriation claims for cultural property stored in collections and also new initiatives to use museums as a means of empowering the indigenous voice.
