About this Item

Language: English . Brand New Book. Hide production is one of the oldest crafts known to humans. Yet this is the first volume to critically explore the gendered nature of this universal activity amongst hunters-gatherers for its meaning in craft production, status, identity and cultural change. Using ethnoarchaeological and archaeological examples from North America and Africa, the authors provide new insights of the gendered nature of human behavior.

About this title

Synopsis:

People have processed hides for mundane, exchange, and ritual items since the earliest paleolithic cultures, yet the highly gendered nature of these activities remains obscured in archaeological research. Editors Lisa Frink and Kathryn Weedman have assembled a collection of diverse essays that take gender as a central point of orientation in hide production processes and reflect on their vast geographical and temporal range, injecting the critical cultural variable of gender into our archaeological interpretations. Chapters include ethnohistoric and ethnographic research among mobile and sedentary populations of North America, the Arctic, and Africa and their applications for understanding prehistoric, protohistoric, and contact period settings. This text will prove enlightening to researchers of archaeology , anthropology, and gender studies, as well as those interested in division of labor research.

About the Author:
