St Maarten to host archaeology of slavery symposium
Published on February 1, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

PHILIPSBURG, St Maarten -- Delegates and visitors from around the world will be in attendance at the upcoming EUROTAST Symposium on the Archaeology of Slavery in St Maarten taking place February 8-9, 2013 at the University of St Martin in Philipsburg.

Organized by the St Maarten Archaeological Center (SIMARC) in cooperation with Leiden University, the two-day symposium will explore and question the ways archaeology has contributed to academic and public understanding of slavery in the Atlantic world, both as an institution and as a lived experience for people of African descent.

Although the primary objective of the event is to train a new generation of researchers, the symposium will be open to the public on February 8 at 9:00 am to allow residents and visitors of the island to learn more about studies related to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.

The program will also include a roundtable discussion on ethics in archaeology and a public lecture on symposium themes given by Professor Theresa Singleton from Syracuse University.
