Kovacik receives NSF DDRIG award

Peter Kovacik received a Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Research Grant from the Archaeology Program of the US National Science Foundation. This award, titled “Effect of Colonial Policy on Land Use”, provides funds to permit Peter to engage in archaeobotanical research into Spanish colonial land-use strategies in the Albuquerque Basin of New Mexico, and how land-use practices differed between idealized models put forth by Spanish administrators and on-the-ground implementation by Spanish and Indigenous communities in the region. Congratulations, Peter!
