Susan McIntosh, November 2007

Susan McIntosh is a professor of Anthropology at Rice Universiy. She is the co-author or editor of three major monographs on field research in Mali and Senegal at the sites of Jenné-jeno (BAR; University of California Press) and Sincu Bara (2002 CRIAA/IFAN). A fourth book, on the use of African data for understanding the emergence and development of complex societies, was published in 1999 by Cambridge University Press. Because of the growing problem of looting of terracotta statuettes from Middle Niger sites, she has become involved in issues of archaeological heritage and cultural property over the past decade, and has published and lectured widely on these topics. Her current research focuses on the emergence of large-scale, complex societies in Africa, the impact of climate and environmental change on human society in the past, and the politics of archaeology and archaeological representations of the past.
