Details about Virginia L. Butler and linked projects and collaborations.
My scholarship studies the long-term dynamic relationships between people and the environment using zooarchaeology, with a geographic focus in western North America. I draw on evolutionary ecology to model predator-prey interactions, while considering how human demography, social and technological variables, and independent paleoenvironmental change affects human subsistence strategies. I am working with a team on a project to examine intracommunity response to earthquake-related events, through analysis of the faunal remains from a large pre-contact village in coastal Washington (USA) occupied between 1800 and 100 yrs ago. Many of my projects apply zooarchaeology to conservation management. I’ve been working with science educators on a curriculum model that uses zooarchaeology as an anchor in teaching middle grade science.
