AAA Members in the News

AAA member David Harvey (CUNY) was recently featured on BBC 4’s Thinking Allowed discussing today’s financial crises.

Harvey says:

Capital is the lifeblood that flows through the body politic of all those societies we call capitalist, spreading out, sometimes as a trickle and other times as a flood, into every nook and cranny of the inhabited world.

Also, Lisa Lucero (UIUC) discusses a new theory of Mayan rituals on MSNBC:

Ancient Mayans farmers, builders and servants left records of their daily lives with the objects they embedded in the floors and walls of their homes during rituals in which their houses were burned down and then rebuilt… “But the commoners had their own way of recording their own history, not only their history as a family, but also their place in the cosmos,” said Lisa Lucero…

Finally, Dr. Kathleen Ryan of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology is leading a team of colleagues at the the Laikipia Archaeological Project in North Central Kenya.  They are keeping a running blog about their daily adventures.
