Zoe Doubles



I hail from Virginia and have migrated through Kentucky to Illinois. 

Research Interests

My research interests center around migration and how communities maintain their cultural identity as they move into different regions and interact with other peoples. My main area of interest is household archaeology, incorporating ceramic analysis and settlement patterns to reflect how communities enact their culture through created materials and the built environment. I have also begun pursuing foodways as another line of evidence for culture and identity maintenance.
