Editorial Reviews

Review

To achieve a deeper understanding of the processes of identity-formation among the Maya of Chunchucmil, Scott Hutson articulates a relational approach to subjectivity through a focus on dwelling and daily life. He adeptly synthesizes recent theory in the social sciences and humanities dealing with subjectivity, agency, materiality, power, and practice to explore the ways in which subjectivity was produced and transformed at Chunchucmil―in the shared work of food preparation, in the intertwined biographies of people and houses, and in varied encounters with pyramids, patios, and causeways. This book exemplifies the promise of social archaeology to understand human lives in the past as well as to contribute to social theory in the present. (Arthur A. Joyce, University of Colorado at Boulder)

Dwelling, Identity, and the Maya is based upon Hutson's dissertation, but it is so much more than a dissertation monograph. It is an important addition to the scholarly literature on Maya archaeology. As well, it contains a substantial theoretical introduction which poises the study to be of interest to a wide range of archaeologist and other social theorist. (Journal of Anthropological Research)
