Dr. Jane Eva Baxter is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at DePaul University. She received her BA from Boston University with a dual major in Archaeological Studies and Anthropology and holds a MA and PhD in Anthropology from the University of Michigan (2000).

Her current work focuses on cemeteries in the United States.

Dr. Baxter has written four books, edited three peer-reviewed volumes, authored over 35 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and presented over 70 conference papers as well as writing many technical reports, book reviews, and articles for newsletters and magazines.

Her most recent works include “The Archaeology of Childhood,” second edition (Rowman and Littlefield, 2022), “Archaeologies of the Heart” (co-edited with Kisha Supernatant, Natasha Lyons, and Sonya Atalay-Springer 2020), and “The Archaeology of American Childhood and Adolescence” (University Press of Florida, 2019).

She is currently completing a book on the archaeology of Chicago’s Pullman Community (University of Toronto Press) and a co-authored archaeology textbook (Sage). She is the recipient of the DePaul University College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences Excellence in Teaching Award and has a long history of service to professional organizations in archaeology.
