Matthew Sanger is engaged in researching the beginnings of sedentism, establishment of permanent towns, and the development of regional identities within Native American communities more than three thousand years ago in coastal Georgia and Florida. He is investigating two large, ritually-charged village sites in order to better understand how native peoples refashioned their material and social worlds and were able to establish long-lived villages with well-defined identities.

My time as a Teagle Fellow highlighted the ways in which new technologies can be deployed within the classroom alongside more traditional pedagogical methods. This was brought home by working with my peer observer as together we were able to critically judge the effectiveness of my teaching style, the tools I used, and how I might be able to build upon both in the future. -- Matthew Sanger
