Rosemary Joyce

Rosemary Joyce, Ph.D., is a professor of anthropology at UC Berkeley and an archeologist who has conducted fieldwork in Honduras since 1977. Her research interests include ceramic analysis, household archaeology, and sex, gender and the body, interests unified under the heading of social archaeology, not coincidentally the title of a journal of which she is a founding editor. She would like to be known for changing fixed ideas about sex and gender, but is resigned to being known for her work on the early history of chocolate. Her publications include Ancient Bodies, Ancient Lives (2008). Embodied Lives: Figuring Ancient Egypt and the Classic Maya (2003); The Languages of Archaeology: Dialogue, Narrative, and Writing (Blackwell, 2002), Gender and Power in Prehispanic Mesoamerica (University of Texas, 2001). She received her Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Illinois-Urbana in 1985.

What Makes Us Human

Anthropology used to be easy to define: it was the study of exotic people somewhere else. But from its beginnings, anthropology has been less a way to describe varieties of human beings and more a way to answer question about the state of human being. Anthropologists ask the question, "What makes us human?" and seek our answers in studies that insist on recognizing all the many ways there are and have been of being human.
