I am currently a graduate student studying mortuary archaeology at Michigan State University. My academic interests are in mortuary and bioarchaeology, with a specific interest in connecting the physical remains to the mortuary context. Along with this, I am also interested in Digital Humanities, and the integration of technology into academia, as well as public archaeology and outreach.
About Bones Don’t Lie (BDL):
This blog was created to serve as a way for me to keep up to date with current mortuary and bioarchaeology news, as well as a way to work on my own scholarly writing. Since then it has evolved into a way for me to explore a variety of regions, theories, interpretations, perspectives, and methods in the discipline.
I try to give a number of perspectives and never favor one view over another, but sometimes (due to lack of time or knowledge… I mean, c’mon, I’m a grad student) I miss something important. I openly encourage people to contact me with resources and alternative viewpoints. I will gladly write new posts updating old ones. In fact- this is one of the most important parts of blogging. Blogs are a way of opening the dialogue to the greater world. So please, feel free to contact me and I will do my best to make BDL a balanced and informed blog.
