Third Thursday Food for Thought Presentation: “Making and Breaking Waves: Feminist Thought in Anthropology’s History”
May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, May 18, 2023, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s Third Thursday Food for Thought presentation will feature “Making and Breaking Waves: Feminist Thought in Anthropology’s History” presentation by anthropologist Ruth Burgett Jolie, Ph.D. This free Zoom online program will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 pm (ARIZONA/Mountain Standard Time, same as Pacific Daylight Time).
In some circles, “the F-word” is “feminism”- a dirty word not to be discussed in good company. Yet, feminism, the political movement advocating for women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality, is an important concept to discuss as it is influenced by the social context in which we live. Feminism has impacted our day-to-day lives as well as anthropology as a discipline. This presentation provides a brief history of feminism in the United States, considers how feminism has impacted anthropology, and concludes with a discussion of how anthropology has impacted feminism. Dr. Ruth Burgett Jolie is Associate Curator of Education at the Arizona State Museum and affiliated Associate Professor of Anthropology in the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona.
