Recent Publications: Alum Duwe Edits New Collaborative Volume on Pueblo History

The Continuous Path: Pueblo Movement and the Archaeology of Becoming, edited by Sam Duwe (Ph.D. 2011) and Robert Preucel, is now available through the University of Arizona Press. The book, the outcome of a seminar at the Amerind Foundation, challenges archaeologists to take Pueblo notions of movement seriously by privileging Pueblo concepts of being and becoming in the interpretation of anthropological data. Archaeologists, anthropologists, and Pueblo community members weave multiple perspectives together to write histories of particular Pueblo peoples (from Hopi to Taos through the time of emergence to the twenty-first century). Within these histories are stories of the movements of people, materials, and ideas, as well as the interconnectedness of all as the Pueblo people find, leave, and return to their middle places. What results is an emphasis on historical continuities and the understanding that the same concepts of movement that guided the actions of Pueblo people in the past continue to do so into the present and the future. A number of School of Anthropology students, faculty, and alumni contributed, including Chuck Adams, Claire Barker, Jacob Campbell, T.J. Ferguson, Sam Fladd, Saul Hedquist, Dwight Honyouti, Maren Hopkins, and John Welch. Ordering information can be found here. (Anthro News digest date: 4/19/2019)
