Class of 2023
Hi y'all, my name is Lindsey, and I'm from Tennessee (having lived in both Nashville and Knoxville). I'm a sole Archaeology concentrator, though give that three months and I'm sure it'll change. I didn't think I was going to concentrate in Anthropology until I realized how much I loved learning about the human past, reading 15+ page papers about theory, rolling in dirt, getting blisters from shovels and/or trowels, and spending my summers covered in sweat. In terms of my archaeological interests, regionally I am most interested in the Southeastern US, specifically the Appalachia region, and I also enjoy learning/researching topics of gender and the relationships of people and their environments. For work I am a student assistant for the Initiative for the Science of the Human Past, and for recreation I like to take photographs, listen to music, research my family tree, and recently strength training. Outside of archaeology questions, I can also help with questions about gap years or leaves of absences, the Accessible Education Office, CAMHS, or the Academic Resource Center. I've come to learn that one can't navigate Harvard alone, so please reach out if you have questions or need help!
Indigenous history of the Appalachia region; interactions of Indigenous groups and Europeans; gender perspectives and cultural expression; theoretical discussions of gender, materialism, and the environment; role of environment in culture; cancer in antiquity; paleopathology.
