Alice Kehoe, Anthropologist and Archaeologist
Alice Beck Kehoe is well-known within the field of American archaeology for questioning orthodoxy and challenging the traditional white male perspective on other cultures, past and present. She has published seventeen books, of which one has had three editions and three others a second edition, plus numerous articles and professional papers. Several of her books are texts widely used in anthropological courses. Teaching thousands of undergraduates honed her ability to present ideas in direct, lively prose and to use stories and anecdotes that prick readers’ unconscious biases.
