Archaeology (archaeology, hunters-gatherers, European prehistory, archaeological method and theory)
PhD, University of Michigan
Professor Jochim has three major areas of interest:
- Evolution and Ecology-particularly the relationships between micro- and macroecology and between decision-making and selective penalties and benefits.
- Hunters and Gatherers-including patterns of subsistence, settlement, and land use, ideology and ideas of causation.
- European Prehistory-with an emphasis on regional patterning, economic change and population movements.
