Research Summary

Dr. Tina Thurston is an archaeologist specializing in northern Europe - Sweden, Denmark and Northern Ireland. Her research, funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Geographic Society, concerns the development of the political complexity, especially under conditions of colonialism or imperialism during the late prehistoric, Medieval, and Early Modern periods. Her current projects focus on the intersection of politics and environment during attempted transitions between more egalitarian/heterarchic forms of rule to more centralized and hierarchic structures, and the violent conflicts between state bureaucracies and agropastoralists in both temperate lowlands and high-elevation, marginal environments.  Dr. Thurston theorizes these problems through landscape  theory, postcolonial theory, and political ecology frameworks.
