About this product
- DescriptionWithin the well-established field of historical archaeology of plantations, this work is unique in focusing on a plantation outside of the Americas. In nineteenth century Zanzibar, clove plantations were established by Omani Arab colonial rulers of the East African coast. This work will explore themes of: capitalism, colonialism, plantation agriculture, African diaspora communities, gender identities, as well as Islamic studies.
- Author BiographySarah K. Croucher is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Archaeology, and Feminist, Gender & Sexuality Studies at Wesleyan University. Her research broadly explores nineteenth-century African Diaspora contexts, largely through the study of East Africa. She is interested in questions of identity and power, and theoretical debates in historical archaeology. Her current research is based in Middletown, Connecticut, where she directs a community archaeology project examining the Beman Triangle, a mid-nineteenth century free African American community associated with the AME Zion Church where she is examining racialized, gendered, and community identities in relation to the neighborhood landscape.
