The Ritual Landscape of Cahokia: The focus of this course is two-fold. The first is to study the way in which the archaeological evidence has been interpreted. The second is to examine other perspectives on Cahokia, especially from the Native American descendants who consecrated this landscape nearly a millennium ago.
An underlying tenet of this seminar in understanding Cahokia can also be achieved through the traditions and literature of Native Americans. In the end we want to understand the basis for Cahokia's organization as a prehistoric Native American community, and the role that ritual and religion played in the rather dramatic and dynamic history of this community and the surrounding region.
Past Tense, Future Imperfect: In the present, an age of information and rapid change, public intellectuals offer broad and detailed visions of what took place in the past, what is happening now, and what the trends suggest for the future.
This course looks at the efforts of two prominent public intellectuals, economist Lester Brown and geographer Jared Diamond.
In this course we look at Brown's work in its latest incarnation, Plan B 4. We discuss this in light of current events. The professor includes a personal perspective as an archaeologist working with the ancient Maya civilization.
The Maya are famous for the ninth-century AD collapse of their Classic civilization. The readings provide the basis for discussion of the challenges we face in understanding the life histories of societies and discerning what we can conclude about the future from their experiences.
