Much Ado about Nothing?: Gender Research in Journals during the last 30 Years within Archaeology
2012 (English)In: To Tender Gender: The Pasts and Futures of Gender Research in Archaeology / [ed] Back Danielsson, I.-M. & Thedéen, S., Stockholm: Stockholm University, 2012, 17-32 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This paper accounts for the extent to which gender research is represented in leading archaeological journals throughout the 1980s to the present through the database Arts & Humanities Citation Index (ISI). The paper regards gender research as including gender, feminisms, masculinities, queer, intersectionality and embodiment. It is concluded that gender research, despite its alleged significance and progress in later years, is substantially marginalized within mainstream archaeology. Comparisons are also made between gender archaeology and mainstream archaeology and differences between the two are discussed. The paper further addresses current research trends within the humanities placing an increased emphasis on publications in leading peer-reviewed journals. Since the paper shows that gender research is poorly represented in such periodicals the author urges archaeologists interested in gender to publish in these journals.
