A new article in the Annual Review of Anthropology, “Race and Racism in Archaeologies of Chinese American Communities,” by co-authors Kelly Fong, Laura Ng, Jocelyn Lee, Veronica Peterson, and Barbara Voss, has just been published. Barbara Voss is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Stanford University and a CHCP Advisory Board Member.
Annual Review of Anthropology is one of the top-ranked journals in the discipline. The articles selected by its editorial board often become foundational to the next generation of scholarship.
This article provides a critical review of current research and charts future directions for antiracist Chinese diaspora archaeologies. Notably, this is the first such review article in which the majority of the authors are Chinese American.
The article draws examples from the Market Street Chinatown and other studies that CHCP has been involved in, to highlight best practices for antiracist and intersectional interventions in archaeology.
