Paul Mickey Science Series: Secondary Colonization and the Persistence of Cultural Traditions: A Look at Ceramic Wares and Food Comsumption in Post-Conquest

  • Location: ISM Research & Collections Center, Springfield
  • Date: Wednesday, August 13, 2014, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Dr. Elizabeth M. Scott, Associate Professor Emerita, Illinois State University, will present "Secondary Colonization and the Persistence of Cultural Traditions: A Look at Ceramic Wares and Food Consumption in Post-Conquest Quebec."

In settings of secondary colonization, where one European colony is colonized by another European nation, the material culture available to all residents is controlled by the conquering nation. Perhaps one of the clearest cases of this was post-Conquest New France, where, after the French and Indian War, the conquering British put in place an embargo on all goods from France. Thus, the large numbers of French residents who continued to live in Canada had access only to goods from Britain or materials conveyed through British merchants. Given this situation, are there any differences in the ceramic choices made by contemporaneous British and French residents in and around Quebec City? Can these differences be attributed to different cultural traditions? In this presentation, the British Anderson household (1780-1820) will be compared to the French New Farm site (1780-1850) in terms of their respective ceramic assemblages and zooarchaeological collections. Several intriguing differences between the two households will be discussed.
