Hannah Cobb (SFHEA, MCIfA, FSA, FSA. Scot) is Professor of Archaeology and Pedagogy and Associate Director for eLearning and Teaching Innovation (SALC) at the University of Manchester. Her research focuses on both contemporary archaeological practice, and the British Mesolithic. In the former, questions of pedagogy, training, equality and diversity are a central concern, in the latter her research examines the intersection between material culture, landscape and identity. In both areas, Hannah’s research is informed by posthuman feminism. She is co-director of the multi-period Ardnamurchan Transitions Project (2006 to present), Chair of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists Equality and Diversity Group, author (with Dr Karina Croucher) of Assembling Archaeology: Teaching, Practice and Research (OUP, 2020) and one of the editors of Reconsidering Archaeological Fieldwork (Springer, 2012).
