Samenvatting

Since the founding of the United States, the rights to citizenship have been carefully crafted and policed by the Europeans who originally settled and founded the country. Immigrants have been extended and denied citizenship in various legal and cultural ways. While the subject of citizenship has often been examined from a sociological, historical, or legal perspective, historical archaeologists have yet to fully explore the material aspects of these social boundaries. The Archaeology of Citizenship uses the material record to explore what it means to be an American. Using a late-nineteenth-century California resort as a case study, Stacey Camp discusses how the parameters of citizenship and national belonging have been defined and redefined since Europeans arrived on the continent. In a unique and powerful contribution to the field of historical archaeology, Camp uses the remnants of material culture to reveal how those in power sought to mold the composition of the United States and how those on the margins of American society carved out their own definitions of citizenship.

Recensie(s)

This interesting book examines consumer choices evident in the archeological record to highlight the dynamic nature of U.S. Citizenship. --Choice Anchored by [Camp's] research on both Mexican and Japanese immigrants, this book sets out an ambitious new program of study for historical archaeologists--that of citizenship. --American Antiquity Camp does an excellent job of exploring the theoretical nuances surrounding citizenship, linking them to the kinds of data archaeologists collect, and explaining why it all matters. Of crucial importance, Camp advocates strongly for an activist approach to archaeology that demonstrates its contemporary relevance. --North American Archaeologist Focuses on the lives of powerless and marginalized peoples who remain outside the attention of conventional scholarship. --Journal of American Studies A thought-provoking consideration of the homogeneity and heterogeneity of the historical archaeological record, and the ways it can be used to investigate the imposition or adoption of particular cultural values and expression. --Illinois Archaeology
