Bio

Michael E. Smith is an archaeologist with two research themes: The Aztecs and other societies in ancient central Mexico, and comparative urbanism. He has directed fieldwork projects at numerous sites in the provinces of the Aztec empire in central Mexico. His fieldwork focuses on the excavation of houses and the study of daily life. He has published six books and numerous scholarly articles on the Aztecs; his books include the textbook, The Aztecs  (3rd edition, 2012), Aztec City-State Capitals (2008), and Aztec Imperial Strategies (F. Berdan et al, 1996).

Dr. Smith’s second major theme—comparative and transdisciplinary research on urbanism—has developed since his arrival at ASU in 2005. By analyzing ancient cities using concepts and methods from contemporary urban studies, Smith is exploring the similarities and differences among cities throughout history and around the world. Neighborhoods and the provision of urban services are two of the few urban universals, and Smith is part of a transdisciplinary research group addressing these topics, with support from ASU and the National Science Foundation. He also participates in an informal working group at ASU and the Santa Fe Institute to determine whether the regularities of urban scaling (worked out for contemporary cities) also apply to ancient cities. This project investigates cities and urbanism at the most fundamental level: the interactions of people in built environments. Smith also publishes on comparative empires, economies, and systems of social inequality.

Research Interests

Why did our Neolithic ancestors give up their lifestyles of relative freedom in order to live in crowded cities ruled by kings and elites? Why did Neolithic people who were used to relatively egalitarian village living assent to the social classes, inequality and poverty of early states and cities? This transition—called the Urban Revolution by archaeologists—was one of the most fundamental transformations in human history. Yet it remains one of the most poorly understood episodes of our past. I use four strategies to address these questions with my research:

  1. Reconstruct Aztec society.
  2. Focus on households and communities, not kings and elites.
  3. Analyze cities comparatively, from a transdisciplinary perspective.
  4. Use knowledge of the past to develop insights for the future.

Strategy 1: I study the Aztecs, the last rather than the earliest Mesoamerican urban society. I believe that archaeologists need to figure out what life was like in the early cities and states before we can address questions of their origin.

Strategy 2:  My fieldwork emphasizes the study of houses and domestic conditions, not temples, palaces, and tombs. This “household archaeology” approach studies society from the bottom up, from the “ground level,” in order to avoid the biases that come from traditional emphases on kings and elites.

Strategy 3: I analyze cities (and other social institutions) in a comparative, transdisciplinary framework. All social historical research needs to be comparative in order to reach solid conclusions about conditions in the past; cities and societies are too complex to be understood by any single academic discipline.

Strategy 4: I am exploring ways to use knowledge from the past to develop insights for the future. The past as revealed by archaeology has lessons for us today, but these can only be discovered and applied if research is done in a rigorous fashion, with attention to social conditions today.
