    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.

    The following is an excerpt from the 09/23/22 San Jose Mercury News:

    By Sal Pizarro

    The Chinese Historical and Cultural Project got its start when San Jose city officials contacted leaders in the Chinese community after artifacts from a 19th century Chinatown were found during construction of the Fairmont Hotel in 1986. Last Saturday, the group was back in downtown San Jose to celebrate its 35th anniversary with a crowd of 650 people at the Marriott hotel.

    Gerrye Wong, co-founder and a trustee of the group, introduced the event’s honorees: Buck Gee, brothers Arthur and Daniel Jue, Patrick Kwok, Michael Chan, Chenming and Margaret Hu, and the Bay Area Chrysanthemum Growers Association.

    “This was the first opportunity for the Chinese community to join together during COVID times to support the 35 years of service the CHCP has done to spread Chinese American history to the valley” said Wong, joined by co-chair Debbie Gong-Guy. Assemblyman Evan Low brought a state proclamation and Dr. Paul Gee presented the event chairs with bottles from his private collection of Bouchaine wine from his 100-year-old Napa Valley vineyard.

    The event was highlighted by a showcase of Chinese fashions, including ornate Mandarin robes, from the collections of Nathan Louie and Sunny Chen, with 30 models representing various organizations including Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, Silicon Valley Lions Club and CATS. And the auction got lively with emcee Dion Lim and former U.S. Rep. Mike Honda vying for dinners hosted by celebrity chef Martin Yan and a visit to the famous “Flintstone House” in Hillsborough going to eager bidder Eleanor Yick.
