Return to Archaeological Method and Theory syllabus

Paul Mullins

Every student will present one reading to the class (i.e., not the whole week's readings, just one selection).  Presenters should summarize the reading's main points, assess its strengths and weaknesses, and provide some initial ideas to guide the discussion.  All students will be prepared to participate in class discussions of the readings, so the presenter's duty is to begin that discussion.  Every presenter must provide me a thorough outline of their presentation on the day of the presentation or lose half of their reading presentation credit.

Readings are assigned on a voluntary basis:  if you do not volunteer to present one of the readings by January 23, I will assign you to one at random that evening.  The line ABOVE the reading indicates the person who is presenting that reading:  please do not get confused and prepare the wrong reading for class.

Readings in the Contemporary Archaeology in Theory volume appear in the syllabus as CAT.  Readings in Reconstructing Archaeology appear as RA.  Readings in Ethnographic Archaeologies appear as EA.  Remaining readings are available electronically through either a direct link from this page or on Oncourse under the resources tab for the class.
