Alconini

I am an anthropological archaeologist who specializes in the rise of sociopolitical complexity in ancient pre-Columbian societies. Originally from Bolivia, I have conducted research in the Andes for several decades. I am particularly interested in exploring the frontiers of the Inka empire, and the ways in which these contested spaces affected on the dynamics of ancient borderland populations.

As an undergraduate, I double-majored in Anthropology and Classics, and was one course short of a minor in geography. I was fortunate to have worked as a zooarchaeological research assistant to Professor Gil Stein for two years, graduated with Anthropology honors, and received Northwestern’s annual Charles D. Hurd award for independent research (archaeology).

My research centers the study of the past (and present) on Indigenous peoples’ knowledges and ongoing relationships with ancestral mound landscapes, working in partnership with descendant peoples of an eastern Muskogee (Creek) community in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. Thousands of these earthen mounds sit across eastern North America, constructed by Native American peoples over the previous five thousand years.
