Archaeology Café (Tucson): Consent and Dissent in Deep Time
May 3, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
On May 3, 2016, Lewis Borck (University of Arizona, Archaeology Southwest), will present “Consent and Dissent in Deep Time.”
I will examine a complex period of the human experience about 100 years before either Niza or Coronado set foot in the U.S. Southwest. Specifically, I will be discussing the spread of material culture that archaeologists call Salado that is associated with the dispersal across the southern Southwest of what I argue is a decentralized religious movement and how that movement contended with entrenched, hierarchical belief systems in various areas.
I will approach this problem having used historical and scientific analyses applied to archaeological data, but will present them in a public setting where questions about the applicability of the findings to contemporary life will be encouraged.
