- B.A. Natural Resources and the Environment, Sewanee: The University of the South
Caroline is a current masters student primarily interested in the interactions between people and placemaking. Specifically, her work aims to discuss how and why communities construct and maintain modifications to the land, addressing the roles of the natural, built, and ideational environments within complex Woodland social landscapes.
While completing her B.A. in Natural Resources with a minor in Archaeology at Sewanee: The University of the South, she developed an interdisciplinary perspective rooted in geology, soil science, and archaeology, to best identify and understand the dynamic interconnectedness of cultural institutions and their modifications to the greater ecosystem. While completing her masters, Caroline continues to build a strong foundation in anthropogenic archaeology with skills in geomorphology, geophysics, and indigenous studies, discussing broader social complexities of the prehistoric Southeast, cultural relationships with the environment, and the short and long-term management practices used to shape the ever shifting landscape.
If not working in the lab in the Center for Research in Archaeogeophysics and Geoarchaeology, you could easily find Caroline cycling through the Front Range or backpacking in the Rockies.
