Margaret Nelson

Professor, School of Human Evolution and Social Change, Arizona State University

Vice Dean, Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University

Faculty Profile

Dr. Nelson has conducted research in the Mimbres region of southwest New Mexico for over 30 years, collaborating for the past 20 years with Dr. Michelle Hegmon. Their work focuses primarily on the Classic to Postclassic transformation. Nelson’s 1999 book Mimbres During the 12th Century: Abandonment, Continuity, and Reorganization derives from that research. Her upcoming book Mimbres Lives and Landscapes, edited with Hegmon, brings many specialists together in a popular book about archaeology and Mimbres culture. She lead the LTVTP project, an interdisciplinary research team addressing a range of social-ecological issues concerning resilience and sustainability for prehistoric small-scale farmers in the US Southwest (600-1500 CE) and the lessons learned from this research for contemporary issues of resilience and sustainability.

Matthew Peeples

Graduate Student in Anthropology, School of Human Evolution and Social Chanage

Student Profile

Matthew Peeples is a PhD Candidate in anthropology in the School of Human Evolution & Social Change. He has served as a graduate research assistant on various forms of the LTVT Project since 2005. His involvement with the research team has focused on the creation of large settlement databases for each of the case study areas. These data have been used for reconstructing patterns of demographic and social change through time and across space. His dissertation research centers on the Cibola/Zuni region during the 12th through early 14th centuries. Specifically, his work explores the processes through which changes in the mechanisms of collective social identification influence the trajectories of large-scale social transformations.
