On disciplinary culture: archaeology as fieldwork and its gendered associations

Moser, Stephanie (2007) On disciplinary culture: archaeology as fieldwork and its gendered associations Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory, 14, (3), pp. 235-263. (doi:10.1007/s10816-007-9033-5).

This paper discusses the disciplinary culture of archaeology, focusing in particular on the role of fieldwork in shaping the sense of identity for the profession. Based on the examination of the professionalisation of Australian archaeology, it is argued that there is a distinctive suite of attributes relating to the activity of fieldwork, which are central to the organizational culture of the discipline. These attributes can be seen to have a gendered dimension, revealing the extent to which archaeology is shaped by different gender regimes.
