First 2-year postdoctoral fellow selected
By: Elizabeth Klarich
Michael Harrower (Ph.D., Ohio State University, 2006) joins the Cotsen Institute Fall 2008 as the first two-year postdoctoral fellow. Mike’s research examines the long-term social change from the beginnings of agriculture to the rise of ancient states along both sides of the southern Red Sea (Ethiopia and Yemen). He combines Geographic Information Systems (GIS) with ethnoarchaeology, concentrating on landscapes, settlement patterns, territoriality, agricultural practices, and irrigation.
