New SASHP Honors Seminar: Historical Archaeology of Slavery
Need another course to add? Looking for something interesting? Try this course!
Historical Archaeology of Slavery 01:090:295:06 Index# 16281 Professor Carmel Schrire, SAS - Anthropology TTh 3:55-5:15P Biological Sciences Building, Room 206 Douglass Campus
Will count towards SAS - Anthropology major and minor.
Historical Archaeology of Slavery covers the period of European contact, world-wide, from 900-1850 AD when European nations expanded their maritime empires to the New World, Africa and Asia. It encompasses the Age of Mercantile Capitalism, where plantations were established in overseas colonies and where the trans-Atlantic slave trade evolved to provide a massive labor force. The demographic consequences of these processes included relocation of millions of African and Asian people, the decimation of indigenous societies, and the disappearance of medieval lifeways as the rise of capitalism bred the cities and slums of the modern world.

Advising Tip of the Week
Looking for new and quiet places to study? Here are some of our SAS Honors Program Peer Mentors' favorite spots:
My favorite place to study this semester is the second floor of Kilmer Library on Livingston Campus. The quiet floor is full of individual cubicles that are perfect for concentrating on difficult concepts and mastering problems.
The Sage Library on College Ave is a beautiful place to study.
Besides the libraries, there are tiny libraries on campus. SERC Library and Hill Center Library are two options.
My favorite place to study is the room with the white board walls in the Livingston Student Center! It helped a lot for classes like physics that were difficult, because I could draw everything out and it made studying more tolerable.
I spend some time for online homework and printing in SERC study room and Allison Road Classroom (ARC) Computing center on Busch and the Math and Science Learning Center (MSLR) on Busch.
Some others are the Alcove in Records Hall; the Coffee Shop on the 1st floor of Livi Towers; the 2nd floor of Kilmer Library on Livi; the study lounges in McCormick; the Art Library on College Ave; Alexander Library on College Ave; the Douglass Campus Library.
