The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation has awarded the Research Award to Prof. Dr. Gustavo Politis from Argentina. He is a distinguished researcher at the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET) and a Professor at the Universidad Nacional del Centro de la Provincia de Buenos Aires. This award is well-deserved and recognizes Prof. Politis' remarkable scientific career and profound contributions to archaeology.

Prof. Politis' research has left an indelible mark on the field of archaeology in South America. His focus on the archaeology of the Pampean region, northeastern Argentina, and the early settlement of the Americas has not only solidified his academic standing but also significantly advanced our understanding of these areas. His pioneering ethnoarchaeological research among South American hunter-gatherers, Nukak, Hotï, and Awá, has opened new avenues of study. His work on crucial issues in the theory and history of archaeology from a South American perspective, as well as within the current of critical archaeology, has been instrumental in shaping the discipline.

Prof. Politis has received numerous awards throughout his illustrious career, including the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship (2003), the Houssay Trajectory Award (2013), the Argentine National Researcher Award (2013), and the 2023 Shanghai Archaeological Forum Research Award from the Institute of Archaeology of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.  

Professor Dr. Gustavo Politis is hosted by Professor Dr. Carla Jaimes Betancourt at the University of Bonn.
