Research Interests

Professor Green is an archaeologist, who has
led major field research projects in South Carolina and Ireland. He is
currently co-director of the Creadan Head Archaeological Project in Waterford
Ireland, a major heritage project being conducted in collaboration with County
Waterford and the Village of Dunmore East to document and exhibit the earliest
prehistory of the area. In the broader context he is co-editing a volume for
the World Archaeological Congress on Archaeology and Heritage as a Public Good.

Since the early 1990’s he has also studied The Anthropology of baseball as an American Institution and the role of the liberal arts in the transformation of American Higher Education. His most current teaching focuses on Climate Change, a topic he has researched since the 1970’s. All of these interests are framed by a general anthropological expertise on  culture change and a commitment to preparing today’s students for their lives and careers.
