94. Engaged Anthropology: Research Essays on North American Archaeology, Ethnobotany, and Museology

Author(s): Michelle Hegmon, B. Sunday Eiselt (editors)


A collection of essays based on the 2005 Society for American Archaeology symposium, presenting research that epitomizes Richard I. Ford's approach of engaged anthropology. This transdisciplinary approach integrates archaeological research with perspectives from ethnography, history, and ecology, and engages the anthropologist with Native partners and with socio-natural landscapes. Research papers largely focus on the U.S. Southwest, but also consider other areas of North America, issues relating to museums collections, and indigenous approaches to materials research.

Notes, Comments, Reviews:

" This volume transcends the limitations of the [festschrift] form and stands on its own merits as a collection of chapters on public anthropology from a North American perspective. . . . The chapters . . . are diverse enough to attract readers from many specialties . . . and the range of interests and topics exhibited by the authors accurately mirror the diversity of Ford's contribution to North American anthropology."
