Dr Yvonne Marshall is a Senior Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Southampton.

I was educated in New Zealand and Canada (BA, Otago; MA, Auckland; PhD, Simon Fraser University) and appointed at Southampton in 1994. My specialist areas are prehistory and social theory; my passion is the development of feminist and indigenous approaches to archaeology.

I have completed major field projects at Pouerua, northern New Zealand; Sigatoka, Fiji; Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada; and the Women's Peace Camps at Greenham Common, England.  I am currently working on projects in Taiwan and New Zealand.

Research interests

My attention is currently focused on completing a book which draws together my three greatest passions in archaeology: Pacific archaeology, feminist theory and indigenous archaeologies. My central argument is a critique of the way archaeologists normatively construct difference - whether between people, objects, assemblages, time periods or places - and points to the potential of feminist and indigenous archaeologies to transform our notions of difference and the ways we choose to write archaeology.

PhD Supervision

I love all forms of social theory and I am interested in their application to archaeology, particularly in prehistory.  I am especially keen to supervise PhD students who are working in the Pacific Rim region and are looking to explore socially engaged research based in feminist and indigenous perspectives.

I currently supervise PhD students who are researching:

  • Feminist perspectives on Etruscan ceramics.
  • Building effective strategies for using social media to enhance and diversify engagement between museums and communities.
