Research Summary

Douglass’ current work investigates human-environment interaction in Madagascar. She uses archaeological, ethnohistorical, ethnographic and biological data to understand the dynamic relationship between communities and their environment over time. For the last five years, she has directed the Morombe Archaeological Project (MAP) in Madagascar, a project that combines regional excavations with gathering oral histories in southwest Madagascar.
