Facing gender. Corporeality, materiality, intersectionality and resurrection

Abstract [en]

This text discusses some recent trends within gender research with a special concern for their possibilities for archaeological application. It is argued that the linguistic constructionist perspective, or third wave/postmodern feminism, fits the archaeological realities poorly. Instead, a neomaterialist standpoint in combination with an intersectional perspective is advocated. However, since such an approach departs from the study of active agents, an archaeological application needs to some extent to ‘resurrect’ the dead. Thus, methodological aspects are discussed in relation to new advances within forensic anthropology in order to extend the amount of personal in- formation that can be derived from the bones and associated materialities.
