Description

This volume contains fifteen studies of gender and archaeology in Europe from different perspectives, including contributions to the research history of gender in archaeology as well as case-studies that focus on gender relations in Iberia, Scandinavia, Russia, Eastern Europe, and the Eastern Mediterranean. In addition, two introductory essays place these various approaches in context, explicitly considering how knowledge is created by scholars located (“situated”) in time and space, how different academic traditions and regional approaches are (or are not) represented in the dominant English-language literature, and how gender research is disseminated to the public and to academic audiences.
