Donna M. Glowacki is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Notre Dame and a long-time research associate (and past employee) of Mesa Verde National Park and Crow Canyon Archaeological Center. For over 25 years, she has been doing archaeological research in the Four Corners that focuses on understanding how societies change, particularly the social processes that lead to regional depopulation and migration, the formation of large, aggregated villages, and pottery production and exchange. Her recent book, Living & Leaving: A Social History of Regional Depopulation in Thirteenth-century Mesa Verde (University of Arizona Press), explores these issues. Glowacki’s publications include one book, two edited volumes, and over 20 book chapters and articles, and she has conducted fieldwork at 88 of the largest sites in the Central Mesa Verde region.
