Situating the Greenham archaeology: an autoethnography of a feminist project
Marshall, Y. and Roseneil, Sasha and Armstrong, K. (2009) Situating the Greenham archaeology: an autoethnography of a feminist project. Public Archaeology 8 (2-3), pp. 225-245. ISSN 1465-5187.
This paper discusses an ongoing investigation into the material cultural legacy and memory of the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp. Using an autoethnographic approach it explores how a project at Greenham became an exercise in feminist practice, which aimed to stay close to the spirit and ethics of its subject of study, the women-only, feminist space of Greenham. We draw on principles from feminist and post-positivist scholarship to argue for the importance of reflexively exploring personal investments and situatedness in relation to research. The paper offers three narratives, one by each author, of our involvement with, and relationship to, the archaeological and ethnographic work at Greenham. It thereby also presents an account of how the objectives and methodologies of the research developed and changed over time.
