I am a proud member of the Women in Archaeology Podcast and Blog! We recently left the Archaeology Podcast Network to set out on our own and make new content. Check out all of our older podcasts on the WIA website and on iTunes. You can listen to the podcast on iTunes as well! Don’t forget to subscribe! Click Here to visit website and listen to the episode on the Women in Archaeology website.
We explore the concept of intentional or “utopian” or “communal” communities throughout North America. Intentional communities include the Shakers, the Harmony Society, The Oneida community, Brook Farm, the Moravians, the Kawah Colony, and Mormon towns.
We visit with Stacy Kozakavich, the author of a new book by University Press of Florida, The Archaeology of Utopian and Intentional Communities, and ask her about her inspiration for the book, the role intentional communities have taken in shaping North America, and why they continue to be important in society.
As a thank you to our listeners, we have included a discount link for the book, direct from the publisher! Follow this link and use code: WA18 at checkout.
