ARCHAEOLOGY SEMINAR SERIES : Identity and rock art both on and off the rocks Other events...
In many countries, cultural and socio-political identity is shaped, manipulated, presented, and negotiated through rock art. Both on and off the rocks, pictographs and petroglyphs are powerful tools. In this talk, I present results from fieldwork in southern Africa, northern Australia, and west Texas. I focus on re-contextualised rock art images, in commercial settings, in academic publications, and as integral components of national symbols. I also consider innovative new visitor centres concerned with conservation, job creation, promoting ‘community archaeology’, and – above all – challenging visitors’ preconceptions of rock art and of the Indigenous peoples who made it.
