About Lisa Hodgetts
Lisa Hodgetts is Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Western Ontario. She graduated in 1995 at the Simon Fraser University in British Columbia and gained her doctorate at the University of Durham in 2000. Previously she was a post-doctoral fellow in the Archaeology Unit at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, and then Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology in the University of Manitoba.
Her research applies zooarchaeological techniques (the study of animal bones from archaeological sites) to gain a better understanding of past human groups. She is particularly interested in the ways in which the capture and consumption of animals serve to both influence and express human culture. She works at a variety of geographic and temporal scales to reconstruct trends in diet, prey selection, mobility, and social organization, primarily among Arctic and Sub-Arctic hunter-gatherers. Dr Hodgetts is also interested in combining archaeological survey, excavation and traditional Inuvialuit knowledge to better understand the development of cultural landscapes in the Western Canadian Arctic from the earliest human occupation of the region to the recent past.
