Ph.D. dissertation title:

The Material Culture of Social Structure: Rank and Status in Early Iron Age Europe (advisers: Peter S. Wells, K.C. Chang, C.C. Lamberg-Karlovsky)


Research:

European prehistory with an emphasis on the pre-Roman Iron Age. My work has been directed toward the following specific research topics: the archaeological interpretation and analysis of complex societies, particularly as reflected in mortuary contexts; material culture as a symbolic system and a means of communicating social relationships; the role of alcohol and its consumption in establishing and maintaining social systems in prehistoric and historic societies; the archaeological interpretation of prehistoric gender configurations; and the socio-political history of archaeology, particularly its role in identity construction in 19th and 20th century nationalist and ethnic movements in Europe and the United States.
