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.

Figurines

I have attempted to cover this material on figurines and archaeological interpretations several times:
