This talk examines the emerging field of the archaeology of the Japanese diaspora in the United States. The first part of this talk examines archaeological work conducted on World War II incarceration sites associated with Japanese Americans, including the presenter’s archaeological research at Idaho’s Kooskia Internment Camp. The second part of the talk considers the directions that interdisciplinary and extra-site archaeological research on the Japanese diaspora in the United States can take in the coming years, including efforts to digitize and disseminate data from sites associated with the Japanese diaspora.
