    Dr. Camp is an historical archaeologist who specializes in the archaeology of the late 19th and early 20th century Western United States. Her current research interests include the archaeology of race, racialization, and social inequality, the archaeology of institutional confinement, heritage tourism and leisure studies, Americanization campaigns aimed at immigrant populations, and archaeological applications of GIS. She has excavated on archaeological projects in both the Western United States and Ireland.

    Her first book, The Archaeology of Citizenship (2013, University Press of Florida), explores the interplay between consumption, citizenship, and national identity in historic America.

    She is currently excavating the remains of north Idaho's Kooskia Internment Camp, a World War II Japanese American Internment Camp. This work has been featured in a number of media outlets, including Japan's Fuji News (tv), Al Jazeera America (tv), PRI's (Public Radio International) The World (radio), Germany's Der Spiegel Online (newspaper/blog), CBS San Francisco (tv), and Associated Press (newspaper). More information about her research can be found on her Kooskia Internment Camp Archaeological Project website

    Outside of work, she enjoys hiking, figure skating, running, and spending time with her husband, Ben, her four-year old daughter, Lana, and her two-year-old son, Ty.
