Listen to this episode of The Arch and Anth Podcast in which Derek Boyd (Ph.D. student at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville) discusses intersectional theory and a range of topics in biological anthropology (including forensic anthropology, bioarchaeology, and paleopathology).
“What was happening socially and technologically in industrial-era #England? How does Derek want to study historical health in this context through a combination of scientific methodologies and archival research? Why is the application of #intersectionaltheory to studies of archaeological human remains becoming a more common approach? How may we understand the past better by considering the intersections of age, sex, #race, #class and geographical location when interpreting data? What about Derek’s other research in #taphonomy facilities (or otherwise known as #bodyfarms), and does intersectional thinking play into his work as a forensic anthropologist too? Listen to Derek’s answers on archandanth.com, or iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher and anywhere else you find #podcasts! “
