Dr. Stephen Dueppen is an archaeologist who is spending two years at the University of Oregon as an ACLS New Faculty Fellow. He has conducted fieldwork in Senegal, Kenya and Burkina Faso, where he currently directs the Kirikongo Archaeological Project. His research at Kirikongo focuses on the development of institutionalized inequalities and their rejection and replacement by an egalitarian political system in the 12th century CE. In this talk, he will discuss sources of spiritual authority and power in Voltaic societies and their diverse local manifestations.
