  1. Dear Jennifer,
    I am in independent researcher writing a series of books on the History and Philosophy of the Cognitive Science of Religion, with particular interest in the McClenon-Winkelman hypothesis re the significance of dissociative states on the evolution of early Shamanistic forms of religion, and I’m trying hard to read your 2004 “Beyond Belief:” Being unaffiliated at present makes access to seminal works very difficult / costly at times, and I wondered if this paper and any of your other work is open access? Thank you for your time, and Merry Christmas! Dominic

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    I am an archaeology MA student writing a review of your 2002 paper “Agency and Archaeology: Past, Present, and Future Directions”. I would like to include biographical information as well as the sociopolitical context that may have been relevant to the perspectives taken within the paper. If possible, could you contact me and let me know if there is anything particularly interesting that, at this time, had contributed to your opinions and perspectives on agency, the individual, social structures, and ideology within archaeology? I would be very interested to here your personal account!

    Warm regards,
