Puebloan Societies: New Perspectives Across the Subfields

Chaired by Peter Whiteley, Anthropology Curator, American Museum of Natural History

Puebloan societies present key problems for the understanding of social systems. Significant continuities between Ancestral and historic and contemporary Pueblos are palpable—in material practice, architecture, economy, and symbolism—throughout the Four Corners region. Yet they co-exist with major linguistic differences. Where are the fault-lines of similarity and difference, and how are these to be explained socially, demographically, and culturally? This seminar brings together scholars from across all four anthropological subfields to seek new explanations for Puebloan societies over time and space. We aim for a new “New Perspectives on the Pueblos.”
