ISSUES IN CONTEMPORARY ARCHAEOLOGY
Credit points: 15
In the subject we will revisit some major and enduring theoretical issues in contemporary archaeology. The subject forms a bridge between the structured world of undergraduate learning and the more individualistic spheres of postgraduate research and employment in public archaeology. This subject requires the student to develop the initiative required to cross from one realm to the other. Seminar-style classes place strong emphasis on student participation.
