Queer(y)ing the Past – LGBT + History Month event

Co-organised by the University of Cambridge Archaeological Field Club, the Department of Archaeology’s annual LGBT + History Month explores the topics of sexuality, gender and archaeological practice.

Speaker: Gabriela Oré Menéndez, Vanderbilt University

“Redefining (my) archaeological practice through queer lenses”

Abstract: As a discipline, Archaeology is undergoing a self-critical reflection on inclusivity, diversity, multivocality, accessibility, and the acknowledgment of colonialist practices within the field. In addition, archaeologists are considering the impacts of how we practice archaeology, the types of research questions we get to ask, and who is asking them. In that context, I lean into Queer Theory to redefine the way we approach archaeology. From the research approach to the methodology to data interpretation, I reflect on how the future might look, and how this transformation is happening and is pushed by personal histories.
