WAC Inter-Congress on Archaeological Theory in South America

The WAC Inter-Congress on Archaeological Theory in South America will be held in San Fernando del Valle de Catamarca, Argentina, from July 3rd to 7th, 2007. This is the Fourth International Meeting on Archaeological Theory in South America. The Meeting is organized by the Doctorate in Human Sciences of the Faculty of Humanities and the School of Archaeology of the National University at Catamarca, and counts as one of the World Archaeological Congress' activities in the region. After the meetings at Vitoria (Brasil, 1998), Olavarria (Argentina, 2000) and Bogota (Colombia, 2002), and because we know that silence won't help us understand Archaeology in our region, we want to regain the impulse. And with that aim is that we want to meet those who work within Archaeology and those who are in some way interested in Archaeology, pertaining themselves to researched societies, because of their activities or their interests. Extending the dialogue is the one of the aims of the meeting.

This announcement includes also a CALL for SYMPOSIA proposals, with August 20th 2006 as the deadline. While in this stage there is considerable flexibility in possible formats, we are thinking on symposia including 4 to 8 papers each. Proposals and/or ideas regarding sympsia/workshops/roundtables/etc are welcome. Please write to
