Archaeological Sciences of the Americas Symposium
10/6/2012, 9:00 am
Keynote Address, Oct. 6: Speaker: Dr. Ryan Williams, Associate Curator and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at the Chicago Field Museum
The goal of the symposium is to spotlight innovative research that applies scientific techniques to the study of prehistoric and historic materials. The symposium traditionally focuses on the archaeology of the Americas. However, students and professionals engaged in projects outside the Americas are also encouraged to submit abstracts.
ASAS gathers graduate students and professionals in an intimate setting to share the latest research and methods spanning anthropological and paleontological sub-disciplines, including but not limited to archaeometry, isotope analysis, ancient DNA analysis, paleobotany, geoarchaeology, bioarchaeology, and spatial analysis.
The 2012 symposium is co-sponsored by the Vanderbilt University (Department of Anthropology, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences) and the University of Florida (Department of Anthropology).
