About Paige

My name is Paige Magrogan, and I am a first-year PhD student in Anthropology at American University in the Archaeology Track. I am interested in using biological anthropology and historical archaeology to study the biological and social history of African Americans in the eighteenth century, particularly the effects of racial formation processes and slavery on children. My other academic interests include: marronage; feminist theory; sex and gender; sexuality; parenthood and childhood; cemeteries; and landscape, space, and place.

In my spare time, I am an avid reader and podcast listener, and I love spending time with my family, including my golden retriever/lab mix named Scirocco.
