ANTH 338 - Memory, Commemoration, and Heritage


CR: 3
Prerequisites: Two 200-level courses in ANTH or ARCH. This course takes up the question of how and what societies remember. We examine the social contexts of memory and the practices through which memory is channeled in the past and in the present. We look at the material constructions designed to commemorate events, people, and the past generally, including burials, memorials, rituals, and re-enactments and recreations. We explore the ways in which people recently have sought to transform the past into “heritage,” asking both why and how heritage becomes such a concern today. Offered alternate years. May be counted toward the major or minor in archaeology. V.5
