Description

The College of Liberal Arts' University Forum Lecture Series presents "Under the Castles’ Cannon: The Archaeology of Africa in the Atlantic World," a talk by Christopher DeCorse, professor of anthropology, Syracuse University.

The Atlantic trade, including the slave trade, linked Africa and the Americas for more than four centuries, engendering dramatic changes for societies on both sides of the ocean. The talk will explore the impacts of Africa’s interactions within the wider Atlantic and examine how the Atlantic trade affected and transformed West African societies.
