Kathleen Sterling's research is centered in the French Pyrenees, where she is currently co-director of an open-air late Paleolithic site. This project grew out of a long-term pedestrian survey project that has collected thousands of lithic objects spanning the Paleolithic. Her interests include lithic technology, learning and identity, Paleolithic visual imagery, hunting and gathering groups, gender and feminist science, and the sociopolitics of archaeology. She is currently a series editor for Ethical Archaeologies: The Poetics of Social Justice, and a co-editor of Ethics and Archaeological Pedagogy: Publics, Lifelong learning, Accountability.
