Research projects in historical archaeology have been greatly enhanced by trans-Atlantic, comparative perspectives and questions probing the contours of European colonial impacts. Marley Brown's work has provided a key intellectual impetus to these developments. His focus has compelled colleagues to exhaust interdisciplinary data sets in each research project, and to frame questions with a large-scale, comparative perspective. A remarkable variety of research questions are being addressed, often engaging with theoretical debates on subjects such as racism, class structures, social group identity, agency, power, ethnicity, and self-determination. In a period when many of our colleagues are lost in post-structuralist and post-humanist gyres of speculation, Brown's intellectual voice navigates a path of enduring knowledge claims on vital cultural dynamics.
