"I’m a lumberjack, and I’m okay . . . .": Inspiring Critical Reflection on Gender and Bias
Author(s): Valerie M. J. Hall
The archaeology of gender is a complex field, examining the intersection of gender, sexuality, and class as performed through material culture. Research in the field also turns a spotlight on biases inherent in Western culture that are often blindly projected onto the past.
Dr. Elizabeth Scott’s work challenges these biases, inspiring students and colleagues to think critically about perception and perspective while examining the lives of people "of little note." Her research elucidates the routine practice of those whom the history books have largely overlooked, while inspiring many students and colleagues to explore feminist theory as a framework for research.
