In this episode, Chelsea Blackmore joins us to discuss her work on identity, oppression, queer archaeology and outreach. Dr. Blackmore is a professor at UC Santa Cruz whose primary work has focused on the construction of social difference in Mesoamerica, particularly among the Maya. Some of her more recent work has included analysis of a Spanish Mission site in California and pirate archaeology. We discuss how her interests developed, the need for better representation in archaeology, and the new Queer Archaeology Blog.
