The duality of female archetypes in facilitating fieldwork: case studies in Arizona and Jordan (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Jennifer Lewis.

Polarizing female stereotypes are nothing new: Madonna/whore, “career woman”/ “stay at home mum,” “girly/tomboy”, and others Though modern feminist movements have opened many doors to removing the limitations applied to these stereotypes, women may still find themselves assuming these roles in order to appear more familiar, less threatening, and more trustworthy in order to facilitate their field work. My research in both Arizona and Jordan requires that I assume different female roles: demure...


Feminism and Experimentation (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Henrietta L. Moore.

This paper discusses the relationship between conceptual development and material experimentation in feminist research. It uses the work of Ruth Tringham as a fulcrum for wider discussions on how we can and should drive new forms of experimentation as we enter the fourth wave of feminism SAA 2015 abstracts made available in tDAR courtesy of the Society for American Archaeology and Center for Digital Antiquity Collaborative Program to improve digital data in archaeology.

Feminst Theory: The Missing Link in Archaeology (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Jason Stolfer.

Historically, archaeology has been viewed in an androcentric way. Minorities, including women, have been essentially invisible. Therefore, the missing link of the feminist view lends itself to telling their stories. The purpose of this poster is to describe key findings of prominent researchers addressing gender issues in the field. Key findings by Deagan (1974, 1983), recognized the importance of gender while studying the Spanish colonies. The archaeologist introduced the St. Augustine Pattern,...


Hey Girl, I See You: Identifying Women Within Household Assemblages (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Cori Rich.

I was inspired by the work of Dr. Elizabeth Scott and her ability to shed light onto underrepresented, often invisible, groups of people. This paper looks into the shadows of our past in an attempt to better understand women of different ethnicities and classes. Using ceramic assemblages and women’s activity related materials, I examine how class and ethnicity can impact women’s visibility within the archaeological record. Analysis of this data shows distinct differences between women’s...


Identifying The  Visible: A Look at How Economic Class and Ethnicity Influence Women's Visibility Within a  Household (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Cori Rich.

Archaeology has allowed for underrepresented, often invisible, groups of people within history to become visible and have their stories told.  Despite archaeologists’ best efforts in identifying these underrepresented groups; there is still much work yet to be conducted. There is a lack of information from the eighteenth-century, and even less work done on the way ethnicity and class impact women’s visibility within the archaeological record. This paper utilizes seven site reports, from...


Intersectional Feminist Theory And Materializations Of Multiple, Fluid, Interacting Gender Identities, Exemplified By Immigrant Participants' Negotiations In Reform Women’s Programs Around The Turn Of The 20th Century (2018)

Citation DOCUMENT Suzanne Spencer-Wood.

Feminists have theorized intersectionality in two related ways: in1970 Pauli Murray discussed the "multiple barriers of poverty, race and sex," and in 1989 Kimberlé Crenshaw named interlinked racism and sexism intersectionality, which she recently expanded to include classism, heterosexism, homophobia, ableism, etc. Another kind of intersectionality feminists have theorized are the relationships between gender, class, race, ethnicity, religion, age, etc. in people’s identities, which are the...


On Indigeneity: Are Greenham Women Indigenous to Greenham Common (2013)

Citation DOCUMENT Yvonne M Marshall.

I firmly believe in open-ended research because profound insights unrelated to stated objectives can arise from research projects. This paper explores the nature of indigeneity in our modern world of trans-nationals and international commuters, of being everywhere and nowhere, using the unlikely forum of a modest archaeological research project focusing on the Greenham Common Peace Women’s protests of 1982-1995. Indigeneity is conventionally understood as a relationship to place, or as a...


Remediated roads and flights of fancy, travels with Ruth from past to present (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Michael Ashley.

Twenty-five years ago, an undergraduate in philosophy at UC Berkeley took a course on the archaeology of architecture from Ruth Tringham and then dropped out of school, only to return a few years later to pursue a career in archaeology and digital remediation. In this performance, we will co-experience moments of inspiration, perspiration, risk and reflection on a journey with the best travel companion one could ever have. Prepare to be challenged, made slightly uncomfortable, to laugh, cry and...
