Splanchnocranium

by JB in Bone Broke

I’ve been reading a lot of research on the bioarchaeology of violence of late, thought-provoking pieces by Haagen Klaus, Deb Martin and Gwen Robbins Schug that detail the ways in which the ideology of oppression is mediated by physical and structural violence.

In practice, this means I’ve spent a lot of time s........ Read more »
