Women in archaeology have come a long way. They now comprise half of all archaeologists in North America and have surpassed men in the number of archaeology PhDs awarded. They work as the heads of university departments, leaders of field schools, and senior scholars in research institutions. Yet when Linda Cordell (1943–2013) emerged into the field, the landscape was very different.
“Brazil has been a part of my life for about twenty years at this point,” says Professor Benjamin Junge, one of two 2021–2022 Weatherhead fellows now in residence at SAR. “It’s a huge country,” he adds, “incredibly diverse. There’s just so much to learn and to understand, and I’ll be doing that forever, for the rest of my life.”
The Diné are resilient people and know how to adapt to hardship. Before Euro-American contact, the Diné wore deerskin clothing. As Spanish, Mexican, and American settlers came to Navajo land and introduced new materials, Diné art and culture evolved.
SAR Announces the 2021 resident scholar colloquium series. From a presentation on race-making in Albania to an exploration of Indigenous perspectives on the WWII Manhattan Project, scholar colloquia are a unique opportunity to hear about each of the 2021 resident scholar projects from the researchers themselves.
Our scholars use their fellowship year to hone writing skills while finishing their diverse research projects. It is no surprise, then, that after leaving SAR many of our alumni manage to publish books and articles that move past the boundaries of academic writing to catch the attention of a national readership.
Mexican American people have long been made to question their belonging to the American social fabric and polity, argue Phillip Gonzales, Renato Rosaldo, and Mary Louise Pratt. Citizenship, both political and cultural, provides one lens on this question of belonging, and our latest Advanced Seminar volume discusses the relationship between Latinx experience and citizenship in the United States from a variety of specific perspectives.
