Jennifer Byrnes (Anthropology) has co-authored a chapter that appears in a new edited volume, The Bioarchaeology of Structural Violence: A Theoretical Framework for Industrial Era Inequality, edited by Lori A. Tremblay and Sarah Reedy. The chapter, "The Erie County Poorhouse (1828–1926) as a Heterotopia: A Bioarchaeological Perspective," co-authored with Jennifer Muller (Ithaca College) and David Ingleman (University of California, Santa Cruz), employs Galtung's concepts of cultural and structural violence as well as Foucault's concept of heteropia to argue that the Erie County Poorhouse (ECPH) served to intensify marginalization of societal Others. The volume takes the theoretical framework of structural violence and illustrates in each chapter how it can allow researchers in bioarchaeology to interpret such socio-cultural factors through analyzing human skeletal remains of past populations.
