A four-part series taught by Dr. Suzanne L. Eckert, curator of archaeology, professor of anthropology, and head of collections


The archaeological record is extraordinarily rich and varied, and yet for most of its history as a field of study, archaeology has failed to recognize gender as a viable research topic. This four-part Master Class presents an introduction to archaeological research on women and gender since the 1960s. We will explore the ways in which a consciousness of gender can offer a more in-depth understanding of the archaeological record and how the study of gender challenges traditional archaeological culture histories as well as how it impacts modern thought.
