Alone in the Deep Blue Sea: A comparison of Indonesian Colonial Period nutmeg plantations and New World plantations (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Amy Jordan.

The Banda Islands were the world’s sole source of nutmeg in the 16th century and control over this spice was a major goal for European powers during the Age of Expansion. Consequently, the Banda Islands were the location of early experiments in colonialism by European powers and can provide information for...

An Archaeology of Becoming (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Samuel Duwe. Robert Preucel.

From the emergence into this world to the settling of the modern villages, the Pueblos view their own history as a dynamic, living process. While key elements of Pueblo identity and worldview have always been with the people, migration experiences and the amalgamation of people with diverse backgrounds and beliefs were essential in shaping the culture and cosmology of each Pueblo group. This process – called ‘becoming’ by Pueblo scholars – is never complete and represents the malleability of the...

Contact, Colonialism, and the Intricacies of Ethnogenesis: Portugal, Spain and the Iberian Moment (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christopher DeCorse.

This paper examines Portugal’s and Spain’s varied contacts, intersections and colonial aspirations in West and western Central Africa. Portugal and Spain share centuries of culture history, religion, and governance, and were united under the Iberian Union between 1580 and 1640. Yet within the context of European expansion into the non-Western world, they have often been considered distinct with regard to their histories and as foci of study. Pushing beyond national pasts, this paper...

DOCUMENT Citation Only Peter E. Siegel. Renzo Duin. Jimmy Mans.

The Guiana Shield is an island demarcated by the massive river systems of the Orinoco and Amazon and the northeast coastline of South America. Numerous Amerindian groups with distinct identities have occupied the region for thousands of years.

Eating Ethnicity: Examining 18th Century French Colonial Identity Through Selective Consumption of Animal Resources in the North American Interior (2004)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Rory Becker.

Cultural identities can be created and maintained through daily practice and food consumption is one such practice. People need food in order to survive, but the types of food they eat are largely determined by the interaction of culture and their environment. By approaching the topic of subsistence practices as being culturally constituted, the study of foodways provides an avenue to examine issues of cultural identity through selective consumption. Eating certain foods to the exclusion of...

The Emergence of Tewa Pueblo Society (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Samuel Duwe.

This poster explores the emergence of Tewa Pueblo society in northern New Mexico and uses archaeological methods to understand the ways in which disparate communities (of migrants and autochthonous people) coalesced to create a novel social, ceremonial, and residential organization – the hallmarks of Tewa village life – in the mid-fourteenth century. While recent research demonstrates where and when these changes occurred, archaeologists know little about why and how the ancestral Tewa...
