David E. Stuart is broadly trained in both anthropology and archaeology, having earned both an MA (1970) and Ph.D. (1972) from the University of New Mexico. Raised in West Virginia, he studied in Mexico as an undergraduate, and has undertaken fieldwork in Alaska, West Virginia, Mexico, Ecuador, and the U.S. Southwest. In 1974 he was a co-founder of UNM's Office of Contract Archaeology. Later, he established his own consulting firm, undertaking archaeological, ethnographic and environmental research fro universities, government agencies, and large research foundations. In 1984 he returned to teaching at UNM, later serving as the University's Associate Provost for Academic Affairs.

Stuart is also an accomplished speaker and has lectured at The Sorbonne, The University of Edinburgh, The University of London, and The University of the Americas. His lecture themes focus on the rise and fall of societies and working class life in modern Mexico. He is known for combining ecology, economics, and cultural energetics to bring human society into perspective.
