The AAHS Publications Committee and the Board of Directors is pleased to announce the winners of our first subvention awards.
Paul Minnis and Michael Whalen for Discovering Paquimé through the Amerind Foundation and University of Arizona Press publishing partnership. This is a popularly written book that shares the research of 15 scholars, and also makes a case for the preservation of archaeological sites and their value for understanding the heritage of the region.
Matthew Pailes for publication of Political Landscapes of Eastern Sonora Mexico: A View from the Moctezuma Valley through the Arizona State Museum Archaeological series. This report uses survey and excavation data to reevaluate the political landscape of eastern Sonora, with repercussions for understanding political systems at a much broader scale. The on-demand publication will be provided to Mexican heritage office, enhancing the dissemination of this information which is important for preservation efforts in the region.
The Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society subvention award program is to provide money in support of the publication of digital or print books or Kiva journal articles that further AAHS’s mission. Many sources of grant funding do not support publication costs. Through this program, AAHS can provide occasional funding to prevent this barrier to the sharing of research results. In 2015, awards up to $5000 will be considered. For more information click here.
