Archaeology of Sex on VoiceAmerica

VoiceAmerica InterviewUCF instructor of anthropology, Dr. Peter Sinelli, took to the air waves to talk about the “Archaeology of Sex”.  Wednesday, February 11, Dr. Sinelli’s interview with host Dr. Joseph Schuldenrein aired on VoiceAmerica, an online talk radio station. VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network is the single largest producer, distributor, and online broadcaster of original live and on demand talk radio programming in the world.

Dr. Sinelli was approached in January by Schuldenrein to be a guest on his show. His show, entitled “Indiana Jones:  Myth, Reality and 21st Century Archaeology”, is produced weekly and listeners can tune in live or on-demand.

This interview focused on sex, as it is an important topic of archaeological study. How people lived and related to each other is a central question to archaeological and anthropological research and sex has always been integral to human relations. The interview explored how well material culture may or may not have represented past attitudes and practices as they pertain to sex.

Dr. Sinelli said the interview was very well received by the host and the listeners and looks forward to doing similar interviews in the future.
