Alison Kyra Carter

Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of Oregon

I am an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Oregon and an anthropological archaeologist with an interest in the political economy and evolution of complex societies in Southeast Asia. I have been undertaking archaeological research in Cambodia since 2005 and speak, read, and write Khmer. My current project is focused on the Angkorian civilization of Cambodia (9-15th centuries CE) and specifically trying to understand the daily lives of non-elite members of society by studying their households and occupation areas.
