I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Anthropology at Michigan State University, primarily interested in the bioarchaeology of Late Prehistoric Midwestern peoples ‚Äì specifically in issues of gender, health, and social complexity in the Lower Illinois Valley Late Woodland-Mississippian transition. I have worked extensively on the excavation of the Morton Village site, a late prehistoric village in the central Illinois River Valley near Lewistown, Illinois. I am new to the Digital Humanities community, but I have been awarded a Cultural Informatics Initiative Fellowship. For my project, I am creating a digital repository for data and materials relating to Mississippian Archaeological sites (http://chi.matrix.msu.edu/2011/02/28/a-digital-repository-for-mississippian-archaeologists/).
