9. Gender Archaeology

Using the textbook Anthropology: What does it mean to be human? for Intro to Anthropology 2021 we read about gender archaeology:

  • April Nowell and Melanie Chang, “Science, the Media, and Interpretations of Upper Paleolithic Figurines”
  • The textbox “Women’s Art in the Upper Paleolithic” in chapter 4 and the second part of chapter 6, “How do we know about the human past?”

The previous class began the archaeology unit with archaeology methods. The next class went on to Domestication.

Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together.
