The Tyranny of Silence and Invisibility

The Tyranny of Silence and Invisibility

(p.313) 16 The Tyranny of Silence and Invisibility
The Archaeology of Race in the Northeast

Charles E. Orser

University Press of Florida

This chapter explores the myth that the northeastern United States was righteously and racially egalitarian, drawing on examples from both the early and recent history of the region. Reviewing the contributions to the edited volume, the chapter reviews how the book considers the mutability and persistence of the racialization process, various strategies of invisibility that the chapters illuminate, and the small scale of analysis adopted. An example of the Dutch notary, Adriaen Janse van Ilpendam, illustrates the value of small scale analyses but also the need to tie the small event to larger global processes that influence past lives.

Keywords:   racialization, invisibility, scale, historical archaeology, northeastern United States
