- Culture Contact
B.A. University of Vermont (2013)
M.A. Monmouth University (2017)
I am a North American archaeologist, interested in culture contact, specifically identity construction and maintenance, as well as ethnogenesis and coalescence.
My research interests include Native American Studies, Culture Contact, Household Archaeology, Social Organization, Political Economy, Historical Archaeology, Colonialism, Northeastern United States, Southeastern and Eastern United States, and Mission Archaeology.
My M.A. research focused primarily on the agency and identity of inhabitants of a late 17th c. Mohawk village and the effects of coalescence and ethnogenesis.
