The Anthropology Club announces its Four Fields Friday lecture series for Friday, March 7. Dr. Jaime Ullinger, Quinnipiac University, will be giving a talk entitled “Community Bioarchaeology: The Case of Mr. Fortune,” at 4:00 pm in the Red Dragon theater in the Hunt Union at SUNY Oneonta. This lecture will discuss Mr. Fortune, an enslaved African in 18th-century Connecticut whose life, and curious life after death, offer insight about being enslaved in colonial America. He was finally buried in September 2013 – 215 years after his death. Before his burial, the Bioanthropology Research Institute from Quinnipiac University collaborated with the African American History Project and Mattatuck Museum of Waterbury, CT for one final examination of his skeleton. A reception will follow the lecture.
William Starna, SUNY Oneonta Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, will be presenting a lecture entitled “Discovery and Dispossession: Whatever Happened to American Indian Land?” on Thursday, March 13, 2014, at The Foreman Gallery, Anderson Center for the Arts, Hartwick College.
