Join UNLV's own Dr. Gabriela Oré Menéndez in their talk titled "Redefining (My) Archaeological Practice through Queer Lenses." 

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, Menéndez leans into Queer Theory to redefine the way we approach archaeology. From the research approach to the methodology to data interpretation, Menéndez reflects on how the future might look, and how this transformation is happening and is pushed by personal histories.
