Canadian Archaeological Association 47th Annual Meeting
The CAA/ACA 2015 Organizing Committee is delighted to announce that the 47th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Archaeological Association will be held at the Sheraton Hotel, St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador from April 29-May 3, 2015. All sessions, professional meetings, and the conference banquet will be hosted at the Sheraton. We invite you to participate in the conference as a session organizer, presenter of a paper or poster or simply by attending the conference. Sessions, papers and posters on all areas of interest to the Canadian archaeological community may be submitted.
Given that this conference will take place in Newfoundland and Labrador we would like to encourage participants to submit sessions, papers or posters that reflect the interplay between Aboriginal cultures, between Aboriginal cultures and European newcomers, and among European settlers. These topics are particularly appropriate for Newfoundland and Labrador, a province rich in First Nations, Inuit, and Metis history and the scene of some of the first European landfalls in the New World.We would also like to highlight northern research through our partnership with the Polar Archaeology Network (PAN) who will coordinate all northern sessions.
Forums encouraging professional development for students and professionals are welcome, as are efforts to engage provincial archaeological societies. Session and Forum abstracts must be submitted by Friday January 9th, 2015. Please forward details to Lisa Rankin (email@example.com). For more information, please see our website
