    Overview

    Popular accounts frequently depict the human past as shrouded in mystery and the occult. Books, television shows and movies about ancient societies often reference extraterrestrials and lost continents. Why? And, what are the implications? In this lecture, Kurnick will explain pseudo-archaeology, why it is popular and why it is problematic. She will dig into pseudo-archaeological claims about the human past, showing they are not just silly and strange, but are often at their core racist.
