About Me

head shot of Elizabeth Kryder-ReidI am interested cultural heritage and how humans appropriate the tangible and intangible remnants of the past and mobilize them in the constitution of social relationships. Using archaeological, historical, and art historical approaches, I explore the intersections of landscape and power and examine how the built environment and other forms of material culture are deployed in the contestation of social inequalities across boundaries such as gender, race, class, ethnicity, and religion. I value collaborative research and seek to produce public scholarship that is accessible, useful, and explores systems of power and social difference.
