Jacob Welch is a PhD graduate student in archaeology. His research interests focus on settlement pattern studies in the Northern Maya Lowlands of Yucatán, México, where he has conducted fieldwork for the past three years. It is here that he aims to study the non-elite social universe through investigations of multi-household social units in Mesoamerican society and the interactions of people at various scales. Through a combination of methodological and theoretical applications, Welch attempts to understand the networks and broader social groups that framed people’s lives, particularly in the form of neighborhoods.
