Professor Ian Kuijt received his B.A. in History from the University of Lethbridge, an M.A. in Archaeology from Simon Fraser University, and a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Harvard University. In addition to a wide range of articles and book chapters, he has published three books that explore a range of issues related to human history and archaeology, including Macroevolution in Human Prehistory (Springer Verlag, 2009), Complex Hunter-Gatherers: Evolution and Organization of Prehistoric Communities on the Plateau of Northwestern North America (Univ. of Utah Press, 2004), and Life in Neolithic Farming Communities: Social Organization, Identity, and Differentiation (Kluwer Academic/Plenum Press, 2000). Recipient of two teaching awards at Notre Dame, Dr. Kuijt has received research funding from the National Endowments for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and the British Academy. Since 2006 he has directed the Cultural Landscapes of the Irish Coast project, an interdisciplinary study focused on documenting social and economic reorganization of 18-20th century island life, and the spread of early Christianity across western coastal areas of Ireland through the 5-12th centuries.
