In this episode, we chat with Dr. Julie Wesp about methods and ideas in bioarchaeology. We discuss on her recently published book, Exploring Gender in Bioarchaeology. This volume, co-edited with Dr. Sabrina Agarwal and published by the University of New Mexico Press, focuses on taking a critical look at interpretations of gender roles and realities in the past through human skeletal remains. Dive into the variation in gender roles across cultures, how these imprint on bodies, and prepare to throw your assumptions, biases, and androcentrism out the window.
