Congratulations to AmSARC researchers on being awarded a Wenner-Gren Engaged Research Grant! Jenail Marshall (PI), Michele Buzon, Mohamed Faroug Ali, and Remah Abdelrahim Kabashi Ahmed will investigate how those conducting research affect interpretations of the past and how archaeological outputs can be explored with the local people in significant ways that are empowering and relevant. The project will ask how the people of Tombos use and reinterpret the landscape and how memory functions as an act and tool of community building. This project will form the basis of Jenail Marshall’s PhD research at Purdue University.
