Cynthia Robin is Professor of Anthropology at Northwestern. She is an archaeologist and project director who works with contemporary Maya to study the ancient Maya civilization of Mesoamerica. Her research focuses on the everyday lives of ordinary people in ancient Maya society to show how ordinary people make a difference in their societies and were not the mere pawns of history or prehistory. She sees archaeology as a field that is both grounded in the study of the past and relevant for the world today. She is the author of Everyday Life Matters: Maya Farmers at Chan (2013), editor of Chan: An Ancient Maya Farming Community (2012), and co-editor of Gender, Households, and Society: Unraveling the Threads of the Past and the Present (2010).
