Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

This course takes an interdisciplinary, multi-scalar approach to the study and conceptualization of plantations and the everyday experiences of people who live and work within plantation landscapes. We consider the implications of plantations as a space that encapsulates the legacies of settler colonialism, labor exploitation, migration, systemic racism, monoculture ecologies, industrialism, agrarian lifeways, and capitalism, and the ways in which plantation systems disrupted and displaced local relationalities. We will bring together the works of archaeologists and ethnographers who have been examining plantations at various theoretical and methodological scales, but who often talk past each other within anthropology and adjacent disciplines.

When Offered Fall.
