My teaching and research projects address aspects of African-American cultural heritage and African Diaspora Studies, including development of interpretative frameworks focusing on racialization, ethnicities, regional systems theories, diaspora studies, dynamics of social group identities, stylistic and symbolic analysis of material culture, and the significance of material production and consumption patterns. I am an affiliate faculty member of the Center for African Studies, the Department of African American Studies, and the Department of Landscape Architecture, and I am the founding editor of the peer-reviewed Journal of African Diaspora Archaeology and Heritage (Left Coast Press and Maney Publishing). If you are interested in taking courses that will address subjects in African-American Archaeology, please consider the following courses, each of which I offer with substantial components focusing on such topics:
Additional research resources and courses are also available at the University through the Department of African American Studies and the Center for African Studies.
