Bio

Doris Maldonado is a University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the Native American Studies Department at UC Davis, for 2014-2015. During this postdoctoral year, she is preparing a book length manuscript, *Local Memories, Local Pasts. *The book is an ethnographic account about the relationships that are formed when the archaeological voice is superseded and knowledge about our relationships, both past and present, are eclipsed by stories of a place: how it is understood by different people, how it is felt, lived, protected, contested, pronounced and evoked in ways meaningful and intelligible to those living there, different to each of the different actors that have a stake in the place, archaeologists included (Rodman 1992). The central themes addressed in the book and her research are: Cultural Heritage, Identity, Nationalism, Archaeological practice, Destierro, Local Perspectives and Place-based Identity.
