Representation matters - and in this episode Dr. Laura Heath-Stout explains why. Laura is an archaeologist, she's queer and she has a disability. We talk about how archaeological findings risk being misinterpreted, the challenge on being queer in an international setting such as an archaeological dig. But this is not just a topic for archaeology or the humanities - this is for everybody, so we chatted about this and how we work with diversity in academia with a special focus on intersectionality. We talk about how Laura navigates diversity now that it is so politiziced and where the balance is between structural work and activism.When not on our podcast Laura is a postdoc in archaeology at the University of Massachusetts Boston. We learned so much and we promise this is not the last episode on ableism.
