ANTH 492A - Seminar - Archaeology: Gender and Archaeology

  • 3 credits

ANTH 492A is a Seminar in Archaeology. In this seminar, we will be examining the topic of gender and archaeology and the ways in which gender can influence interpretations of sites. This is not a course dedicated only to women or feminism. Instead, we wil consider men and intersex individuals as well as women. We will examine gender as a broader topic, as well as ways in which it can contribute to invesigations into subjects such as labor division, subsistence strategies, engendering children and artistic expression. We will also look at how different cultures across the globe defined gender and how this definition appears in the archaeological record.


Six credits of anthropology
