Movement, Connectivity, and Landscape in the Ancient Southwest

Editor(s): Margaret C. Nelson; Colleen Strawhacker

Year: 2011


A collection of the papers presented at the Twentieth Anniversary Southwest Symposium, Movement, Connectivity, and Landscape Change in the Ancient Southwest looks back at the issues raised in the first symposium in 1988 and tackles three contemporary domains in archaeology: landscape use and ecological change, movement and ethnogenesis, and connectivity among social groups through time and space. Across these sections the authors address the relevance of archaeology in the modern world; new approaches and concerns about collaboration across disciplines, communities, and subgroups; and the importance of multiple perspectives. Particular attention is paid to the various ways that archaeology can and should contribute to contemporary social and environmental issues. Contributors come together to provide a synthetic volume on current research and possibilities for future explorations. Moving forward, they argue that archaeologists must continue to include researchers from across political and disciplinary boundaries and enhance collaboration with Native American groups. This book will be of interest to professional and academic archaeologists, as well as students working in the field of the American Southwest. Contributors include Karen R. Adams, Kurt F. Anschuetz, Wesley Bernardini, John Briggs, Catherine M. Cameron, Jeffery J. Clark, Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh, William H. Doelle, Jonathan C. Driver, Andrew Duff, Severin Fowles, Patricia A.
