Product Description

Stephen Mrozowski and Robert Preucel's thorough update of Contemporary Archaeology in Theory reflects the changing nature of the discipline. This reader tackles landscape and natures; agency, meaning and practice; sexuality, embodiment and personhood; race, class, and ethnicity; materiality, memory, and historical silence; colonialism, nationalism, and empire; heritage, patrimony, and social justice; media, museums, and public archaeology. Challenging the division of prehistory and history, this reader looks at the relevance of archaeology in a modern, pluralistic society.
