About this series
This series highlights the application of social theories in the interpretation of data derived from bioarchaeological research. Social theory bridges data with explanation and focuses on cultural processes such as power, ideology, symbols, meaning, social structures, agency, and identity. The series promotes studies that link past understandings with present-day problem solving. In addition, ethical and critical considerations of bioarchaeological research are also emphasized. Topics examined in this series include (but are not limited to) case studies that examine identity, race and racism, gender and sex, captives and slavery, warfare, conflict and violence, inequality and hierarchy, colonization and marginalization, social control, imperialism and subordination, migration and climate change.
