09/24/2022 20:05 | AAC Board Admin (Administrator)

The 2023 Southwest Symposium Archaeological Conference will be held in person at the historic La Fonda on the Plaza Hotel in Santa Fe, NM. Conference presentations will highlight alternate approaches to interpreting the archaeological record of the American Southwest and Northern Mexico at multiple scales. We will follow the traditional format of the Southwest Symposium, with four non-concurrent sessions held over two days:

Attributes to Networks: Multi-scalar Perspectives on Understanding the Past in the Southwest US and Northwest Mexico
Session 1: On Common Ground: Collaborative and Integrative Approaches to Archaeology and Ethnography in the American Southwest (Organizers: Mark R. Agostini and Robert W. Preucel)
Session 2: Multi-scalar Perspectives on the Early Agricultural Period (Organizers: Michelle Carpenter and Robert Hard)
Session 3: Emergent Material Networks in the US Southwest and Mexican Northwest and Beyond (Organizers: Andrea Torvinen, Robert Bischoff, and Christopher Schwartz)
Session 4: First Person Archaeology: Interpreting and Understanding the Past on a Human Scale (Organizers: Ann L.W. Stodder and Mollie Toll)
In addition, we will have a poster session with cash bar on Friday evening with around 20 individual poster presentations.
