NAME
Justin P. Dunnavant

AGE
20

HOMETOWN
Frederick, MD

MAJORS
History and Anthropology

COUNTRY
Jamaica

WHY THE FULBRIGHT?
The Fulbright affords me the opportunity to travel, take additional college classes, and prepares me for graduate studies.

WHY JAMAICA?
I chose to study in Jamaica because it has been the site of several prominent archaeological excavations pertaining to the experience of enslaved Africans in the Americas.

RESEARCH GOALS
I plan to research examples of African cultural retentions through archaeological data. The purpose of my research is to use archaeology to expand our understanding of the African experience in the Americas, highlighting ways in which they were able to preserve material culture in a hostile environment. Based in Kingston, I will be dividing my time between courses at the University of West Indies, researching at local archives and volunteering at Liberty Hall.

CAREER GOALS
After the Fulbright, I will begin a Ph.D. program in Archaeology and ultimately pursue a career as an archaeologist and professor.
