CFP: he Archaeology of Fishing (4-7 January 2018: Boston)

Papers are being sought for a panel, “The Archaeology of Fishing and Marine Resource Exploitation in the Old and New Worlds.” to be held at the Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) to be held in Boston on 4-7 January 2017.

The overall goal of this session is to highlight and disseminate quality research investigating and modeling human efforts to use marine resources (fish, shellfish, mammals, plants, minerals, and so on) on a variety of scales from the personal to the industrial, and from a variety of eras.  Indeed, as the upcoming 2018 conference is on the eastern seaboard of North America, an area with a rich history of such activities, we hope to bring together topics pertinent to the Old and New Worlds and thus illustrate cross-cultural and diachronic similarities.  Although participants should focus on the use of archaeological data to generate their results, cross-disciplinary efforts that combine evidence from a variety of media are encouraged.

The upcoming AIA Annual Meeting in Boston will be held from January 4th to 7th, 2018.  A standard session at the Annual Meeting accommodates a short introduction, presentations fifteen to twenty minutes in length (depending on the number of participants), and a short break if necessary.  We presently have three participants, so we are searching for a few more to complete our roster.  If you are interested in participating, please prepare a paper abstract of approximately 250 words with your name and affiliation, and submit it to Matthew Harpster ( ) by March 13th, 2017.  

Please note that to participate in the 2018 Annual Meeting, individuals are required to have a current membership in the Archaeological Institute of America, and to register for the meeting itself.
