April 28, 2016 by Communications

John L. Creese (PhD, 2010) has published an article titled Emotion Work and the Archaeology of Consensus: the Northern Iroquoian Case in World Archaeology [V. 48(1):14-34]. The article illustrates the central role of emotion in the formation of consensus-based political systems. Looking at Late Woodland longhouse societies of north-eastern North America, the paper shows how emotion work that connected individual bodies with the body politic produced historically particular forms of power and political subjectivity. The paper can be read here. John is currently an Assistant Professor at North Dakota State University.
