Gender Method: doing gender archaeology in practice

Call for contributors to the 2nd AGE online web workshop (Part of the framework of the European Archaeology Days, 16-18 June 2023)

Friday 16 June 2023 (13:00-16:00 CET)

The aim of the workshop is to explore how we “do” gender archaeology. Those wishing to contribute are asked for short, 10-minute conversational pieces, that will discuss and debate the methods behind gender archaeology. We ask you to base your contribution on one, or very few slides.

Please e-mail with the title of your contribution!
