In Black Feminist Archaeology, Whitney Battle-Baptiste describes the process of bringing together disciplines and modes of inquiry that are often at odds as one of “moving mountains and liberating dialogues.” Linking inquiries into her own identity and scholarship, Battle-Baptiste brings an intersectional approach by focusing African diaspora archaeology through the lens of black feminist theory. These intersectional approaches are vital to improving contemporary historical archaeology, and developing it as a practice necessary to broader quests for social and political justice.
