    Archaeologists have the potential to contribute to collective black history and memory, and to help black folks reconstruct their histories from a more politically aware viewpoint. I am a member of a historically disempowered and marginalized group with access to forms of elite knowledge, utilizing social theory and producing knowledge within a field that has traditionally been dominated by white men.  From my position, I am able to rearticulate the stories of the black women in this collection and lend my own critical insights into the history of oppression.
  • Climate scientists predict that accelerated global warming will increase the impacts of extreme weather events such as droughts, typhoons and floods. Such events are likely to have serious social consequences, including famine, displacement, and increased violent conflicts. While these climate events may be becoming more extreme, such events resulting in disasters are not new. It is important to try to understand how human societies with varying livelihoods and vulnerabilities have responded to and invented solutions to such conditions both in the past and the present.
