Topic: Gender Archaeology This course examines both the problems and potential of gender in archaeological research and explores and critically evaluates recent efforts to incorporate questions about the social construction of female, male and a variety of other gender categories, the sexual division of labor, and recent research in cultural and biological anthropology. Within gender archaeology, the roles and agency of ?muted groups? within a society are often included, so we will additionally examine how childhood, old age, and outgroups or 'others' can be addressed in prehistoric and historical archaeology. Throughout, we will underscore how modern and historic mainstream sociopolitical 'norms and values' have influenced archaeological research. We deal simultaneously with two kinds of issues: 1) what we know and what we don't know, what we can and what we can't learn, and 2) how archaeologists develop and use their array of methods and theories to understand these topics to explicitly (rather than implicitly) consider these social categories; students will be encouraged to address these ideas in their own areas of interest. This course meets the Problem-Oriented/Theoretical requirement. Note: This course does not automatically populate in HUB as a problem-oriented/theoretical course. Please email the Undergraduate Coordinator to request the course be used to fulfill this requirement.
