Daniel Sayers

In the first thorough archaeological examination of this unique region, Daniel Sayers exposes and unravels the complex social and economic systems developed by these defiant communities that thrived on the periphery. He develops an analytical framework based on the complex interplay between alienation, diasporic exile, uneven geographical development and modes of production to argue that colonialism and slavery inevitably created sustained critiques of American capitalism. Sayers is an associate professor of anthropology at American University. This talk is part of the Stone Center Writer’s Discussion Series, and is free.
