Rethinking Colonialism

Audrey Horning

University Press of Florida

Key themes of the volume are summarized in this chapter, which addresses the challenge of multiscalar analysis, the balance between structure and agency, and the impact of unresolved colonial legacies on the character, processes, and ethics of archaeological engagements with the public. In addition to reflecting upon the case studies presented in chapters 1-10, additional evidence from Northern Ireland, Great Britain, and Virginia is considered in light of the complicated relationship between colonial identities (and identity formation) with material culture, and the manner of its contemporary interpretation. Suggestions are made for re-framing archaeologies of comparative colonialism to ensure that both the violence and inequity of colonial encounters and the proactive manner in which all those caught in colonialism’s grasp enacted strategies to cope with its forces are acknowledged and critically considered.

Keywords:   colonialism, colonial legacies, multiscalar analysis, structure, agency, public engagement, Northern Ireland, Great Britain, Virginia
