This volume examines human sexuality as an intrinsic element in the interpretation of complex colonial societies. While archaeological studies of the historic past have explored the dynamics of European colonialism, such work has largely ignored broader issues of sexuality, embodiment, commemoration, reproduction, and sensuality. Recently, however, scholars have begun to recognize these issues as essential components of colonization and imperialism. This book explores a variety of case studies, revealing the multifaceted intersections of colonialism and sexuality. Incorporating work that ranges from Phoenician diasporic communities of the eighth century to Britain's nineteenth-century Australian penal colonies to the contemporary maroon community of Brazil, this volume changes the way we understand the relationship between sexuality and colonial history.

About the Author:

Barbara L. Voss is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Stanford University, where she is also affiliated with the Stanford Archaeology Center, Feminist Studies and the Center for Comparative Study on Race and Ethnicity. She is the author or editor of several books, including, most recently, The Archaeology of Ethnogenesis: Race, Sexuality, and Identity in Colonial San Francisco; The Archaeology of Chinese Immigrant and Chinese American Communities (co-edited with Bryn Williams) and Archaeologies of Sexuality (co-edited with Robert A. Schmidt).

Review:

"I have taught this book in two undergraduate seminars, and I highly recommend it as a teaching text for upper-level undergraduates or graduate students. The book sparked nuanced discussions about the role of sex and sexuality in colonial encounters and about the limits and benefits of archaeological data."
Maxine Oland, American Anthropologist

"... students of archaeology, gender and sexuality will appreciate this balanced and well-researched examination of complex and multi-faceted topics."
Kiara Beaulieu, Canadian Journal of Archaeology
