A Workshop of the International Seminar on the History of the Atlantic World
This two-day Workshop will focus on the contributions of archaeology to the study of Atlantic History and the possibilities for future archaeological research. Reports on findings in Western Hemisphere and African historical archaeology will be discussed, together with methods of inference and interpretation. Specific examples of discoveries that have substantially altered the understanding of the interactive history of the four continents will be probed in particular detail.
Attendance at the Workshop and participation in the discussion are open to the academic community. Historians at the beginning of their career, including Ph.D. candidates, are especially encouraged to attend, as well as scholars in historical archaeology and related disciplines. Travel and accommodation expenses will be the responsibility of attendees; the Workshop will provide lunches and local lodging information. (Please see the link on our Web site.) There is no fee for the Workshop, but pre-registration is required.
There will be two sessions on Saturday, November 4, and a concluding session on Sunday morning, November 5, 2000. A complete program will be posted on our Web site in early October.
