Keith Kintigh provides overall direction and coordination for the grant and oversees the project budget. A Southwestern archaeologist, Kintigh is a former president of the Society for American Archaeology and is Professor of Anthropology, in the ASU School of Human Evolution and Social Change (formerly, Department of Anthropology), and co-director of the ASU Center for Archaeology and Society. Starting in 1999, Kintigh led the effort that resulted in the development of tDAR and, since its founding, has been a member of Digital Antiquity’s Board of Directors.

David Abbott is a leading expert on Huhugam archaeology. Professor Abbott’s publications have helped set the research agenda for Huhugam archaeology over the last 15 years. Abbott will advise the project on priorities for inclusion of documents in the archive, on the capabilities needed for effective research using the archive, and on public dissemination strategies and products. Students in his Huhugam Archaeology graduate seminar will provide a valuable and timely test for the research utility of DAHA.

Adam Brin has served as Technical Director of Digital Antiquity for five years. He will lead the development of new capabilities in tDAR. An undergraduate anthropology major at Brown University, he worked on data management and collection development projects for California Digital Libraries, NASA, and AMICO, a consortium of 35 museums that produced one of the first digital libraries of art images.

Leigh Anne Ellison is Digital Antiquity Program Coordinator. In that position, she has established contacts with organizations holding reports to be added to the DAHA and will coordinate with them to obtain copies. She will also do the primary review of the metadata prepared by the digital curator. Ellison holds an MA in anthropology (archaeology) and has worked in Hawaii, Mesoamerica, and the Southwest.

Francis McManamon is ASU Research Professor and Executive Director of the Digital Antiquity. He will provide day-to-day management of the project staff. Before assuming leadership of Digital Antiquity, northeastern US archaeologist McManamon was Chief Archeologist of the National Park Service and Departmental Consulting Archeologist for the Department of the Interior (DOI). In these positions he was responsible for promoting the sharing and long-term preservation of archaeological data by federal agencies.

David Martínez (Gila River Pima) is Associate Professor of American Indian Studies at ASU. Through his participation in project meetings, Martínez will provide an internal check that our activities appropriately honor the values of relevant Indigenous communities and will offer guidance when further action is needed. As the project progresses, he will lead our continuing efforts to foster discussions with the tribes on matters they consider sensitive, as they consider possible roles as contributors, and as we seek to engage their communities as users. The Developing Wassaja Project he leads is done in collaboration with the ASU Nexus Lab and anticipates some issues raised in the proposed work.

Michael Simeone is Research Assistant Professor and Director of the ASU Institute for Humanities Research Nexus Lab for Digital Humanities and Transdisciplinary Informatics. He will provide expert advice on digital humanities methods and scholarship. His research includes visualization and computer vision methods in digital humanities. An affiliate of the Image and Spatial Data Analysis Division at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, he received his PhD in English from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Christine Szuter is the executive director of the Amerind Foundation and oversees the operations of a museum, library and archive, art gallery, and research center. A Huhugam archaeologist by training, she is the former director of the graduate certificate program in scholarly publishing at ASU and former director and editor-in-chief of the University of Arizona Press. Szuter will coordinate scanning of Amerind’s many seminal contributions to Huhugam archaeology. She will work with other PIs in directing the overall DAHA project.

Richard Toon. Research Professor Toon directs the ASU’s Museum Studies degree program and co-directs the ASU Center for Archaeology and Society. He has over 30 years experience in designing and implementing process and outcome evaluations and will lead project evaluation efforts.

Mary Whelan is Geospatial and Research Data Manager for ASU University Libraries. She will work with Simeone on the Digital Humanities analysis component of the grant and with Brin, and Kintigh on the development of new tDAR capabilities. She will coordinate with ASU Libraries on the integration of key Huhugam materials from the Libraries’ Archives and Special Collections. An archaeologist by training, Whelan holds a PhD in Anthropology.
