Bio

Charles Redman has been committed to interdisciplinary research since as an archaeology graduate student he worked closely in the field with botanists, zoologists, geologists, art historians, and ethnographers. Redman received his BA from Harvard University, and his MA and PhD in Anthropology from the University of Chicago. He taught at New York University and at SUNY-Binghamton before coming to Arizona State University in 1983. Since then, he served nine years as Chair of the Department of Anthropology, seven years as Director of the Center for Environmental Studies and, in 2004, was chosen to be the Julie Ann Wrigley Director of the newly formed Global Institute of Sustainability. From 2007-2010, Redman was the founding director of ASU’s School of Sustainability.  Redman's interests include human impacts on the environment, sustainable landscapes, rapidly urbanizing regions, urban ecology, environmental education, and public outreach. He is the author or co-author of 14 books including Explanation in Archaeology, The Rise of Civilization, People of the Tonto Rim, Human Impact on Ancient Environments and, most recently, co-edited four books:  The Archaeology of Global Change, Applied Remote Sensing for Urban Planning, Governance and Sustainability, Agrarian Landscapes in Transition, and Polities and Power: Archaeological Perspectives on the Landscapes of Early States. Redman is currently working on NSF sponsored Urban Reslience to Extreme Events Sustainbility Research Network (URExSRN), a project to encourage the building of more resilient infrastructure in cities of the future.

Teaching:
Redman received his B.A. from Harvard University and his master's and doctoral degrees in anthropology from the University of Chicago. He taught at New York University and at SUNY-Binghamton before coming to ASU in 1983. He is currently teaching in the School of Sustainability which is educating a new generation of leaders through collaborative learning, transdisciplinary approaches, and problem-oriented training to address the environmental, economic, and social challenges of the 21st Century. Redman's current undergraduate introductory class is Sustainable Cities.
