40th Annual Northeast Conference on Andean and Amazonian Archaeology and Ethnohistory

When: November 4-5, 2023

Where: Klarman Hall, Cornell University

What: The Northeast Conference on Andean and Amazonian Archaeology and Ethnohistory (NCAAE) was founded at Cornell in 1982 to offer a more accessible venue for sharing research and works-in-progress, at a time when Andean-focused meetings were located mainly on the West Coast and Midwest. Since then, the NCAAE has grown into a vibrant intellectual community encompassing multiple research institutions and independent scholars in the Northeast, and beyond. We are delighted to announce the conference’s return to Cornell for the 40th anniversary meeting. Participation is free for all members of the Cornell community, but registration is required. We invite participants to submit abstracts for papers and posters on any topic relevant to the archaeology and history of the Andes and Amazonia. In the interest of fostering interdisciplinary ties on campus, we also warmly invite submissions for poster presentations from any Cornell researchers with regional interests in South America. More information on meeting registration and abstract submission can be found on our website at www.ncaae.org.

Hosted by: Matthew Velasco (Anthropology) and Nandi Cohen-Aponte (History of Art)
