Fernandini, Francesca

Grad Status: 

I am an archaeologist graduated from Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, and I am focused on the formation and development of complex societies in the Andes. My main interest is to understand the social and political aspects of these societies and the role ideology plays in the creation of social identities.

I consider that my research questions should be centered in center/periphery relations in crucial contact areas which would allow an understanding of settlement patterns, ideology expansion and the materialization of contact.
