Human2Human Inclusion and Social Responsiveness Series Presents Finding Solace in the Soil: The Archaeology of Gardens and Gardeners at Amache, Colorado's Japanese American Confinement Camp

 

Presented by: Dr. Bonnie J. Clark, University of Denver

 

All students who participate will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of 4 copies of Dr. Clark’s book, “Finding Solace in the Soil: An Archaeology of Gardens and Gardeners at Amache.”

 

During World War II, Americans of Japanese ancestry were removed from their homes and placed into incarceration camps throughout the western US. This presentation overviews the methods and results of six seasons of landscape archaeology at one of those sites — Amache — located in southeastern Colorado. The site contains an incredibly well-preserved record of how the people incarcerated there transformed a hostile landscape through strategy and skill. By integrating a program of historical research, community engagement, and intensive garden archaeology, the University of Denver Amache project is expanding the view of what internee gardens are, how they were created, and their import, both to those who made them and us today.

Looking forward to Dr Clark's presentation to help us relate to the experiences of our Japanese Americans who were confined at Amache Internment Camp during WW II.
