Chelsea Blackmore (email@example.com) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Through the lens of critical feminist theory, Blackmore’s research explores how past societies constructed social difference, in terms of class, kinship, and gendered identities. While previous research has focused on the ancient Maya, she has begun exploring Spanish colonial and indigenous archaeologies in Mesoamerica and more recently in California. Chelsea specializes in household-based archaeology, zooarchaeological, soil and microartifact analyses.
Sarah Peelo (firstname.lastname@example.org) is a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the Introduction to Humanities program at Stanford University. Her ongoing research investigates daily lives and social identity formation among indigenous peoples living in the California Spanish missions, 1769-1834. Sarah is also a specialist in ceramic analysis and has experience using many diverse archaeometric techniques including petrography, INAA, and electron microprobe analysis.
