Taking Care Archaeology Project

This is a project investigating home cooking and community care in the late 19th and early 20th century Chinese diaspora. How did people use cooking to form and maintain extended communities from home villages to labor housing to Chinatowns and other neighborhoods? This project uses archaeological, historical, and ethnographic methods in northern California and Guangdong Province.
