Biography

Kelly M. Britt, PhD, RPA is currently an Assistant Professor of Urban Archaeology at Brooklyn College focusing on community-based historical archaeology of urban spaces. She completed her PhD in Anthropology from Columbia University in 2009, where her research concentrated on how identity and sense of place are seen materially through heritage discourse during processes of change in urban settings.
