Ontologies of Exhumation

Announcing the first of our speaker series 'Ontologies of Exhumation' which will be considering the ethics and philosophy of archaeological exhumation.

Slobodan Mitrovic from the Graduate Center, CUNY will be talking on Thursday 10th February about his experiences carrying out forensic excavations in the former Yugoslavia. We will be reading his article ‘Fresh scars on the body of archaeology’ and considering questions of affect and exhumation.

The ‘Ontologies of Exhumation’ speaker series is sponsored by the Council for Graduate Schools Project for Scholarly Integrity, the Department of Anthropology and the Center for Archaeology, Columbia University, and is running in conjunction with the ‘Archaeologies of Contemporary Conflict’ graduate seminar at Columbia.

PLEASE NOTE: This event is part of a graduate seminar. Please contact Zoe Crossland for more information (, and for access to the class readings.
