Editorial Reviews


“A must-read for all interested not only in colonial California, but for all historical archaeologists and to any archaeologist interested in the examination of identities.”
(Sarah K. Croucher Cambridge Archaeological Journal 2009-01-01)

“Reminds historians that other disciplines can offer fruitful methodological forays into well-trodden areas of study.”
(The Journal Of American History 2009-08-03)

“Exemplary . . . The Archaeology of Ethnogenesis is a required read for scholars of European imperialism, colonization, race, class, and gender. It offers graduate students an inspirational model study.”
(Lu Ann De Cunzo American Anthropologist 2009-12-01)

From the Inside Flap

"A clear and evocative demonstration of how historical archaeology, when done by a scholar of Voss's caliber, can contribute in a substantive and profound way to our understanding of colonialism."—Mary C. Beaudry, author of Findings: The Material Culture of Needlework and Sewing

"The Archaeology of Ethnogenesis will become a model for research on identity in historical archaeology. Extremely well written and readable, it presents the results of original research in innovative ways."—Randall H. McGuire, author of A Marxist Archaeology

"In her innovative archaeological study of shifting identities in Spanish California, Voss shows that the colonists of San Francisco used diverse material practices to establish a new Californio identity and legitimize their status as occupiers of a new land. This book will be of considerable interest to scholars of the Spanish borderlands and gender politics."—Robert W. Preucel, coeditor of A Companion to Social Archaeology

More About the Author

Dr. Barbara L. Voss is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Stanford University. She is a historical archaeologist who studies the dynamics and outcomes of transnational cultural encounters in the Americas, especially those related to colonialism and immigration. Voss' work also forges new dialogues between queer studies and archaeology. Her research is guided by a deep commitment to public archaeology and community collaboration. Her books Archaeologies of Sexuality (co-edited with Robert A. Schmidt) and The Archaeology of Ethnogenesis were each awarded the Ruth Benedict Prize by the American Anthropological Association.
