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, domestic reform movements and 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. She is also in the process of setting up a faculty-led study abroad program in Nepal.
She recently completed her manuscript, The Archaeology of Citizenship (published by the University Press of Florida in August 2013), which 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. More information about her research can be found on her Kooskia Internment Camp Archaeological Project website.
Outside of work, she enjoys hiking, figure skating, and spending time with her husband, Ben, her three-year old daughter, Lana, and her one-year-old son, Ty.
