    Dr. Edward González-Tennant is a historical archaeologist actively working in the American Southeast and Caribbean. His research combines archaeological and ethnohistorical data to investigate specific episodes of culture contact. He utilizes geographic information systems (GIS) to contextualize these data and reveal deeper patterns related to social structure and change. This diachronic approach supports research into the changing relationships between minority and majority groups, factors leading to instances of forced displacement such as race riots, and two and a half centuries of social change as revealed at a British fort in the Caribbean. His recent work views the interaction between the past and present as a form of contact, and he regularly experiments with various approaches and technologies supporting the public engagement with archaeology and the past. Dr. González-Tennant is also completing a manuscript based on his dissertation titled "An Archaeology of Intersectional Violence: The 1923 Rosewood Pogrom in Historical Perspective" to be published with the University of Florida Press.
