Blending Traditions: A History of Collaborative Prehistoric Research in the Carpathian Basin
The past two decades have seen a remarkable increase in the number of joint prehistoric archaeological research programs of US and local scholars in Eastern Europe. These collaborative projects are featured by the innovative blend of profoundly different theoretical and methodological traditions. In our introductory paper to the session, with a focus on the Carpathian Basin, we illustrate similarities and differences in North American and Eastern European perspectives and approaches to explore the archaeological past, provide an overview of collaborative research projects in the later 20th century, and address how these projects have facilitated in understanding specific, major anthropological questions. Finally, we discuss how these investigations have impacted US and local anthropological scholarship and paradigms from a broader perspective.
