Consuming Diaspora: 21st-Century Archaeologies of Finnish Transnationalism
Historical archaeology has gravitated toward archaeologies of identity that revolve around how people consciously if not creatively construct themselves. We focus here on the distinctive Finnish diasporan experience to illuminate diasporan identities as social and ideological constructions shaped by distinct experiences of place and placelessness. We focus on how distinctive transnational experiences across ethnic and racial lines influenced Finnish and African American experiences of consumer culture.
