Summary
  • "By focusing on "racialization"--The marginalizing process in which racial categories are imposed on groups of people based on an outward characteristic - Charles Orser shows how historical archaeology can contribute to the study of race through the conscious examination of material culture. He demonstrates this in two case studies, one from the Five Points excavation in New York City, focusing on an immigrant Irish population, and the second from a Chinese laundry in Stockton, California."
  • "Orser argues that race has not always been defined by skin color; through time its meaning has changed. The process of racialization has marked most groups who came to the United States in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and The Archaeology of Race and Racialization in Historic America demonstrates ways that historical archaeology can contribute to understanding a fundamental element of the American immigrant experience."--Jacket
