African Diaspora Archaeology Newsletter seeks to highlight the complexities of our field through dialogue and exchange. This newsletter also serves as the vehicle to engage with centuries of muted voices uncovered by the archaeological record, politics of representation and narrative, as well as intersections of power, privilege and oppression. One of the many challenges of our discipline is to figure out how to push the scholarly parameters and think more complexly about life across the Diaspora. The material record is always in conversation with the social world, thus reminding us to keep these discussions open.
