The proposal for a EAA working party on Gender and Archaeology in Europe arises from the EAA session Gender, Identity and Materiality celebrated in Malta 2008.The first official action of the current party has been the organization of a round table session by the same name on “Gender and Archaeology in Europe” in the 2009 EAA meeting. In tune with our goals we invited young speakers from seven different European countries in Europe to present their views on the professional situation of professional women archaeologists working in Europe and their views on what gender archaeology should be.
After that, AGE organized sessions on various topic at each EAA Annual Meeting as well as other conferences. Details can be find at the page actions.
Area of concern
The working party has as its area of concern the discussion of Gender issues in European archaeology, where gender is considered both as a structural element to be studied in the past and as influencing research in the present. It will thus address the study and understanding of gender arrangements in the past and the study and understanding of how current gender systems affect archaeology as an academic and professional practice.
