Medio Period Casas Grandes human effigies portray males and females in different stances and types of clothing. These variances reflect aspects of Casas Grandes gender roles, identity, and ritual. Join Dr. Christine S. VanPool (University of Missouri) as she examines these differences and provides insight into Casas Grandes culture. VanPool has written extensively on Casas Grandes and Southwestern archaeology, iconography, religion, and archaeological method and theory.

Christine S. VanPool grew up in Ruidoso, New Mexico. She earned her B.S. in anthropology at Eastern New Mexico University and her M.A. and Ph.D. at the University of New Mexico.  In 2006 she joined the anthropology faculty at the University of Missouri, Columbia. Over the last 20 years, her main research focus has been on archaeological method and theory as it pertains to religion and pottery symbolism in the Casas Grandes world.  Since 2007 she has been co-directing museum and field projects with Todd L. VanPool in Northern Mexico and southern Arizona and New Mexico.  She is the author or editor of five books and numerous articles.
