New Directions in Caribbean Archaeology

This Friday (May 6) from 3-4:15 pm, Dr. Peggy Brunache (University of Glasgow) will be delivering a lecture titled “A Negro Woman in the Shire: A Black Woman’s Journey for Activism through Scottish Academia,” the final event in the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World’s year-long lecture series on New Directions in Caribbean Archaeology.
Dr Peggy Brunache is a lecturer in the history of Atlantic slavery at the University of Glasgow and the first Director of the newly established Beniba Centre for Slavery Studies. She trained and worked as a historical archaeologist with a focus on plantation studies, the African diaspora, and the transatlantic slave trade, working on archaeological projects in Benin, West Africa, Guadeloupe, and various sites in the United States. This talk is an exercise of professional and personal intimacy that highlights Dr. Brunache’s archaeological approach in navigating the racialized violence inherent in slavery archives through a Black feminist lens to address the relationship between African descent communities, public memory, and history.

The event is finished.
