Book Description

December 4, 1999 0415216001 978-0415216005
Gender and Archaeology is the first volume to critically review the development of this now key topic internationally, across a range of periods and material culture. ^l Roberta Gilchrist explores the significance of the feminist epistemologies. She shows the unique perspective that gender archaeology can bring to bear on issues such as division of labour and the life course. She examines issues of sexuality, and the embodiment of sexual identity. A substantial case study of gender space and metaphor in the medieval English castle is used to draw together and illustrate these issues.

Format:Paperback
Gender And Archaeology: Contesting The Past is the first work of critically scholarship to review the developing study of gender in past societies through archaeological evaluation of their material cultures. Roberta Gilchrist surveys the feminist critique of archaeology and feminist epistemologies, showing the unique perspective that gender archaeology can bring to bear on such diverse issues as the division of labor, life course, sexuality, and gender identity. Gender Archaeology is exhaustive, "reader friendly", seminal and scholarly work that will be much appreciated by students of feminist studies, archaeology, history, and philosophy.
