Reviews

“As the title suggests, this [ ] volume aims to give equal weight to the honoree’s pioneering scholarly achievements and his character. Attention to the latter that resonates loudly in personal anecdotes recounted in chapters written by cohorts of former (and some current) students as well as colleagues is what distinguishes this volume from many others in this genre of writing that focus primarily on scholarship.” • Patricia E. Rubertone, Brown University

Description

In a dynamic near half-century career of insight, engagement, and instruction, Kent G. Lightfoot transformed North American archaeology through his innovative ideas, robust collaborations, thoughtful field projects, and mentoring of numerous students. Authors emphasize the multifarious ways Lightfoot impacted—and continues to impact—approaches to archaeological inquiry, anthropological engagement, Indigenous issues, and professionalism. Four primary themes include: negotiations of intercultural entanglements in pluralistic settings; transformations of temporal and spatial archaeological dimensions, as well as theoretical and methodological innovations; engagement with contemporary people and issues; and leading by example with honor, humor, and humility. These reflect the remarkable depth, breadth, and growth in Lightfoot’s career, despite his unwavering stylistic devotion to Hawaiian shirts.
