9780521521468: The Body as Material Culture Paperback: A Theoretical Osteoarchaeology (Topics in Contemporary Archaeology)

Archaeological remains not only intrigue, they also inform. This book looks at the two traditionally separate disciplines which explore archaeological remains; the scientific and the humanistic, and argues that the approaches of both should be combined in order to fully exploit the evidence of the past that remains offer us.

Review:

'… [Sofaer] thoughtfully appraises the theory of the body. She has tried to do something quite different from other texts on either osteoarchaeology or the theory of dead bodies, and she has succeeded. What is presented is a way of bridging the methodological divide by viewing the skeleton as both a material and a cultural object. … By shifting 'the body' into the realm of material culture, Sofaer proposes to combine the study of the diversity and biological fluidity of human skeletons with that of their intersubjectivity and materiality. … For those archaeologists who 'switch off' at the thought of theories of the body, sex, gender and age, this book is an essential read. It is a valuable excursion into how archaeology has conceived and is conceptualising the body as both a biological and a cultural resource. … manages to convey the theoretical association between bodies and objects in a direct, engaging and thought-provoking way.' Antiquity

'Sofaer's discussion of a 'theoretical osteoarchaeology' is convincing and scholarly …' Journal of Medieval Archaeology

'This sophisticated integration of constructivist and biological perspectives demonstrates her [the author] ability to draw insights from both 'sides' and she encourages other scholars to do the same. … Her book is a valuable contribution that provides exciting prospects for osteoarchaeologists who have been striving to incorporate 'anthropology of the body' into their work and it demonstrates a maturing of the discipline. Social anthropologists and archaeologists with interests in anthropology of the body, mortuary practices, gender roles and the changing life course would also benefit from this reading. I think they will be pleasantly surprised by all that osteoarchaeology - of the kind that Sofaer espouses - can offer.' Cambridge Archaeological Journal

Descripción CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 224 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Bodies intrigue us. They promise windows into the past that other archaeological finds cannot by bringing us literally face to face with history. Yet the body is also highly contested. Archaeological bodies are studied through two contrasting perspectives that sit on different sides of a disciplinary divide. On one hand lie science-based osteoarchaeological approaches. On the other lie understandings derived from recent developments in social theory that increasingly view the body as a social construction. Through a close examination of disciplinary practice, Joanna Sofaer highlights the tensions and possibilities offered by one particular kind of archaeological body, the human skeleton, with particular regard to the study of gender and age. Using a range of examples, she argues for reassessment of the role of the skeletal body in archaeological practice, and develops a theoretical framework for bioarchaeology based on the materiality and historicity of human remains.

Descripción Cambridge University Press. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Paperback. 208 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Skeletal remains are a vital source of evidence for archaeologists. Their interpretation has tended to take two divergent forms: the scientific and the humanistic. In this innovative study, Joanna Sofaer Derevenski argues that these approaches are unnecessarily polarized and that one should not be pursued without the other. Exploring key themes such as sex, gender, life cycle and diet, she argues that the body is both biological object and cultural site and is not easily detached from the objects, practices and landscapes that surround it.
