Nicole M. Slovak
Graduate Dissertation Fellow 2006-07, Anthropological Sciences

Nicole M. SlovakĀ is completing her dissertation entitled, "Examining Imperial Presence on Peru's Central Coast: Isotopic and Cultural Analyses of Middle Horizon Burials at Ancon." Her research combines multiple classes of data, namely skeletal, isotopic and cultural, to determine degrees of interaction between the coast and the ancient imperial Wari polity in the archaeological past. Bioarchaeological information generated from Slovak's study will be used to assess the overall health and status among women in the past, and explore the possibility of institutionalized gender inequality within Ancon society.
