April 4, 2016 - Jean-François Millaire Awarded SSHRC Insight Grant

Professor Jean-François Millaire is the recipient of 1 of 8 SSHRC Insight Grants awarded to the Faculty of Social Science this year. Professor Millaire's research program is an anthropological study of early city life in the Andean region of South America, one of the few places where urban society emerged in human prehistory. This five-year study, which builds on previous work by Millaire and his team in coastal Peru, seeks to increase our understanding of the processes connected with the emergence of the first cities in the region and the social dynamics that were both afforded and constrained by this new mode of existence. Congratulations to Professor Millaire and his team on this great achievement!
