Sarah Klassen has been awarded the fourth ISEAA Early Career Award for her submission “Provisioning an Early City: Spatial Equilibrium in the Agricultural Economy at Angkor, Cambodia” published in the Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory https://doi.org/10.1007/s10816-021-09535-5 . Klassen was lead author of the multi-author article. The award committee judged that Klassen’s creative application of economic geography and urban science theories and settlement scaling theory to Angkor data will help bring Southeast Asian archaeological evidence into global discussions of urbanization. The work represents a significant degree of originality and the study is quite successful in terms of integrating theory, method, and data analysis, resulting in new interpretations.
Congratulations Sarah, and THANKS to the distinguished award committee comprised of Grace Barretto-Tesoro, Ben Marwick, Stephen Acabado, Gyles Iannone, and Sian Halcrow
