Recent Achievement in Scholarship

2012 Winner Lisa Kealhofer


Lisa demonstrates the power of interdisciplinarity to shed new light on long-standing questions. An expert in identifying things that are so small that they can be seen only with a microscope, our colleague then links them to the big questions of how cultures develop and decline. A recognized expert in the archaeology of southeast Asia and Turkey, she has been awarded significant research support by the National Science Foundation, the Australian Research Council and the School for Advanced Research. Her work has influenced the scope of research questions addressed in her field and the methodologies used to address those questions. She has pushed for regional-scale archaeological research to demonstrate that examining patterns across multiple sites within a region can shed new light on long-standing questions.
