The New Nomadic Age cover image

The Joukowsky Institute congratulates Archaeology and the Ancient World's Professor Yannis Hamilakis on the publication of his latest edited volume, The New Nomadic Age: Archaeologies of Forced and Undocumented Migration. This book, the first archaeological anthology on the topic, takes up the challenge and explores the diverse intellectual, methodological, ethical, and political frameworks for an archaeology of forced and undocumented migration in the present. Matters of historical depth, theory, method, ethics and politics as well as heritage value and public representation are investigated and analysed, adopting a variety of perspectives. The book contains both short reflections and more substantive treatments and case studies from around the world, from the Mexico-USA border to Australia, and includes several photographic essays.

Available now from Equinox Publishing, and Chapter 17 is freely available online.
