US-CT: Mohegan Field School 2017 - Academic Credit through UCLA


Project Overview

The Mohegan field school studies colonial-era sites on the Mohegan Reservation in an innovative collaborative setting. The study of reservation households sheds new light on the rhythms and materiality of everyday life during tumultuous times while providing valuable perspectives on the long-term outcomes of colonial repression, survivance, interaction, and exchange. The field school brings together students and staff of diverse backgrounds to learn about colonial history, the history of North American archaeology, and—most importantly—the often-troubled relationship between archaeologists and indigenous communities. The field school runs as an equal partnership between the Tribe and an academic archaeologist.

Students will live in the comfortable, but modest, student dormitories at Connecticut College. Students will have their own private rooms (with bed, mattress, and dresser) along with access to a communal bathroom. Rooms are NOT air conditioned, so please bring (or plan to purchase) a window fan to keep your room cool. Students will have access to wireless internet while on campus.
All meals are provided through the Connecticut College cafeteria, open 7am to 7pm. Students eat breakfast and dinner in the cafeteria, but are expected to pack a lunch for each day in the field. The cafeteria caters to most dietary restrictions, e.g., vegetarians, food allergy sufferers.
