Caitlin Reddington Davis, a doctoral candidate in anthropological archaeology, has been awarded the National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant for her project “Usulutan: Resist Ceramics and Politico-Religious Power in the Terminal Formative Southern Maya Region.” The project will integrate compositional analyses of resist-decorated ceramics with formal and stylistic analyses to better understand the production and exchange of this pottery and the role it played in integrating social networks.
