Research and writing leading to a book on how two Jordanian non-profits are developing cultural heritage management capacity among local archaeological laborers.

My ethnographic research project examines a current and significant movement in the practice of Jordanian archaeology, toward building local capacity and increased local representation in cultural heritage management in Jordan. In 2016, two startup nonprofit corporations emerged in Jordan with the aim of building local capacity to document, conserve, protect, and make decisions about the future of archaeological sites in Jordan. These corporations, if successful, will transform entrenched archaeological labor management strategies with more than 200 years of history. I am following these companies for five years in order to advance current discussion across the fields of archaeology, critical cultural heritage, science studies, and sustainable development. This fellowship will support five months of ethnographic fieldwork and seven months to complete a book manuscript.
