Notes

Archaeology faces the unique challenge of stretching social theories of sexuality in new chronological and methodological directions. This essay uses nd analysis of citational practices to consider how feminist and queer theories articulate with the archaeological investigations of sexuality. Both queer theories and feminist archaeological practices are shown to be powerful tools that can be used to expand archaeological interpretations of gender and sexuality.
