FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT: DATE CLAIMER
AAA/ASHA 2014 Joint Conference
Culture, Climate, Change: Archaeology in the Tropics
1–3 December 2014
 
The joint AAA/ASHA2014 conference will be hosted by the James Cook University. The conference theme is ‘Culture, Climate, Change: Archaeology in the Tropics’.


The tropical zone is home to extraordinary diversity, reflected in a rich and diverse archaeological and natural heritage. In our own region discoveries such as Homo floresiensis, sea-faring Lapita peoples on the south coast of Papua New Guinea and the tropics as a key zone controlling global climate have fundamentally reshaped our understandings of the long-term human histories of these vast land- and seascapes.
We invite you to visit the tropics this year to participate in the joint Australian Archaeological Association/Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology annual conference.
In addition to sessions specifically related to the conference theme, general conference sessions will include: historical, Indigenous, cultural heritage, native title, rock art, maritime, museums, archaeological science, environmental change and public archaeology issues.
Venue


Pullman Cairns International (http://www.pullmancairnsinternational.com.au). Discounted accommodation rates for delegates will be available at the time of registration (to be announced shortly).
Dates


The conference will take place over 3 days (1 to 3 December), preceded by workshops and a welcome reception on Sunday 30 November, with optional daytrips available on 4 December.
