|Archaeology Seminar Series- Zoom Edition : Bodies in Motion: Telling Social Stories of Mobility with Scientific Data
The last several decades have seen a revolution in methods for understanding human mobility. Between the increasing precision of isotopic data and the obvious power of ancient genetic information, we are seeing major narrative shifts in how we talk about the movement of people, ideas and technologies in the past. These stories of past peopleís movements catch the public interest because mobility in the present in highly politicized, regulated, and differentially accessible. What does it mean for a person to have journeyed in the past or a migration to have occurred? How do we interpret patterns of mobility which appear to differ by biological sex? How might a past person or groupís experience of mobility impact their identity? In this talk, I will reflect on these questions through a series of case studies drawn from later European prehistory.
Catherine Frieman is an Associate Professor of European Archaeology at the Australian National University. She is lead CI of an ARC DP exploring scientific mobility studies and an ARC DECRA working on a project about innovation and conservatism. Other research interests include lithic technology, skeuomorphism, and later prehistoric northwest Europe. Her first true love remains flint daggers.
