ANTH 3201

From Steve Striffler, Anthropology Chair:

“This is for any students interested in doing archaeology in the city of New Orleans.   A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!   Only at UNO!

ANTH 3201: FIELD METHODS IN ARCHAEOLOGY
UNIVERSITY OF NEW ORLEANS 2016 SUMMER FIELD SCHOOL IN HISTORICAL ARCHAEOLOGY

The UNO Department of Anthropology is pleased to offer a field school in historical archaeology during Session A of Summer 2016. Dr. Ryan Gray of the Department of Anthropology will lead excavations at urban historic sites in New Orleans. The field practicum will introduce students to basic archaeological field methods, including excavation, screening, mapping, characterization of soils, and preliminary artifact analysis. The field school is open to majors, non-majors, and non-degree-seeking students alike, so if you’re just interested in archaeology, in history, or in New Orleans, the dig will provide a unique experience for the summer and a new perspective on the past.

The field school is listed in the catalog as ANTH 3201, Field Methods in Archaeology, and will run during the month of June. There are additional options for students needing to take the course for graduate level credit. The class will meet in the field on Monday-Thursday, typically from 8 am to 3 or 3:30 pm. On rain days, class will meet on the UNO campus to learn basic laboratory techniques. Performance in the class is based upon participation in the field; students should be prepared for heat, humidity, dirt, and physically demanding –but rewarding− work.
Students who would like more information should contact Dr. Gray (drgray1@uno.edu) for more details.

The Women’s Center Coffee Talk Lecture Series: Ashley Hemm

  • Time: 12:30-1:30 PM
  • Location: Liberal Arts 179
  • Date: Thursday, February 18
  • This lecture is FREE and open to the public.

1602111815coffee-talk

The Coffee Talk Lecture Series presents: “Evolutionary Psychology, Female Monogamy, and Edith Wharton’s Roman Fever.” Join us as recent M.A. graduate and English instructor Ashley Hemm talks about her research on reconsidering concepts regarding mate selection and female serial monogamy as they apply to Edith Wharton’s short story.  Evolutionary science has expanded and influenced the social sciences and the humanities over the past few decades, including literary analysis. However, many of these evolutionary approaches are being reconsidered by the scientific community.  “Roman Fever” exemplifies current contention within the scientific community regarding mate selection and female sexual behavior.

Coffee Talk is sponsored by the UNO Women’s Center, with support from the Women’s and Gender Studies Program. Feel free to bring your lunch; snacks and coffee will be served.
