Dr. Stacey Camp

Stacey Camp is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at MSU. Stacey joined the MSU faculty in 2017 after spending 9 years as a faculty member at the University of Idaho. For close to four years she also served as director of one of three state archaeological repositories in Idaho. Her research takes a comparative approach to understanding the lives of migrants inhabiting the late 19th and early 20th century Western United States. Stacey’s first large-scale public archaeology project examined the lives and archaeology of Mexican migrant laborers and their families, which she blogged about on a now defunct website. Her latest project looks at the archaeology of Japanese American prisoners incarcerated in a World War II internment camp, and has likewise been documented on the web. Stacey will took over as director of CAP in May 2018. Her faculty profile can be found here. Her Twitter profile can also be found here.
