A new job in a new place

July 20, 2012

A brief update to share some good news. I’ve accepted a position as a lecturer in the Anthropology Department at the University of North Carolina Wilmington for the 2012-2013 school year.

I’ll be teaching four undergraduate courses per semester. In Fall 2012, those will be two sections of Introduction to Anthropology (ANT 105), one section of Archaeology (ANT 207), and a seminar in African Diaspora Archaeology (ANT 495). Spring courses are not yet decided – I’m pushing for my Historical Archaeology course, but we’ll see.

I’m incredibly excited for this opportunity, even beyond the chance to return to the South, where my cultural and familial roots reside. I am hoping to launch a project through my African Diaspora Archaeology course where the students and I will conduct documentary, oral history and survey work surrounding a historic African-American cemetery in Wilmington. If I can get that off the ground, you’ll be reading much more about it here on Digs and Docs in future months.
