Dr. Cveček Published an Article in “History and Anthropology” and Won an Award
Visiting scholar and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellow Dr. Sabina Cveček recently had an article published in History and Anthropology entitled "No Place like Home for Metalworkers: Household-based Metal Production at Early Bronze Age Çukuriçi Höyük and beyond." This article questions the cross-cultural ethnographic insight of metalworking as a male craft, commonly performed in male spaces (workshops) away from female members of society, through the analysis of archaeological evidence for the household-based metal production within multi-gendered and multi-generational households and corresponding but rare ethnographic examples. Importantly, the article concludes with a call for more attention to metalworking practices within households rather than assuming the existence of male metalworking workshops within archaeology.
Dr. Cveček was also honored with a City of Vienna Promotion Award for Culture and Science.
