Changing Perceptions of the African Diaspora and Archaeology in the Caribbean

Over the course of 17 years research in the region, Dr. Gilmore has witnessed a wholesale change in identity formation and island heritage due to a confluence of factors. A primary case study will the Dutch island of St Eustatius. The lecture will be held in Room 345 of the Anthropology Wing. Sponsored by the Penn Cultural Heritage Center. Free admission.
