Institute for Field Research
is proud to become an institutional partner of the new Coalition for Archaeological Synthesis (CfAS) . The CfAS is the outcome of a workshop held at the School for Advanced Research (Santa Fe, NM) in 2017. Its goals are to fund innovative, collaborative synthetic research. It aims to rapidly advances our understanding of the past in ways that contribute to solutions to contemporary problems, for the benefit of society in all its diversity. This will be accomplished through the analysis and synthesis of existing archaeological and associated data from multiple cultures, at multiple spatial and temporal scales. We hope you will join us and become a CfAS Associate.

Reunión de Teoría Arqueológica de América del Sur (TAAS) (9th, Ibarra, Ecuador - June 4-8, 2018)
Desde hace dos décadas (1998) la Reunión de Teoría Arqueológica de América del Sur (mejor conocida como TAAS) continúa proponiendo instancias de diálogo e intercambio entre instituciones, colectivos, comunidades locales, academias; instancias desgraciadamente cada vez menos visibles en nuestro continente. De esta forma la elección de realizar el TAAS en Ibarra (Ecuador) continúa con el espíritu original del encuentro en cuestionar los paradigmas hegemónicos que enmarcan a la arqueología y el estudio del pasado en tanto investigación como en cuanto práctica social y contribuir con alternativas para repensarla desde el Sur.

Congreso Internacional de Americanistas (56th, Salamanca, 15 al 20 de julio de 2018)
Bajo el tema «Universalidad y particularismo en las Américas», esta edición del ICA llama a la reflexión sobre la dialéctica entre la universalidad y los particularismos en la producción de conocimiento, un diálogo en el que la necesidad de conocer los particularismos de los fenómenos sociales, políticos, artísticos y culturales obliga a formular nuevas hipótesis que enriquecen y replantean las grandes teorías generales de las ciencias y las humanidades.

South American Archaeological Theory (TAAS) (9th, Ibarra, Ecuador - June 4-8, 2018)
From a reflexive perspective, archaeology allows the observation of the development of human societies and thus can be used as a tool for critically questioning political violence generated by the normativity of practices around gender, sexuality, territory, ethnicity and class. With the knowledge acquired by TAAS, we expect to contribute elements to transform social dynamics and build alternatives applicable to a critical Latin American social theory.
Following this approach, we propose two main themes of the TAAS-Ibarra, emphasising on local communities and sexual and gender diversities. These are also central themes to a growing interest of strong consolidating alliances and coalitions between different communities, entities, institutions and social agents of the northern Ecuadorian highlands. For this reason, the congress will take place in two physical spaces: the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador-Ibarra and the Centro Cultural El Cuartel in Ibarra.
La fecha límite para proponer un simposio es el 1 de agosto.

LA ALFARERÍA Y LA TEXTILERÍA DEL SUR DE CAJAMARCA. UN ENFOQUE INTERDISCIPLINARIO
Estamos desarrollando un proyecto interdisciplinario con el arqueólogo Gabriel Ramón, de la misma universidad, y nos gustaría difundir una página web con nuestros avances. Esta página adelanta los principales resultados que se están obteniendo en el proyecto "Léxico y saber artesanal: una etnografía de la alfarería y la textilería del sur de Cajamarca", desarrollado por el arqueólogo Gabriel Ramón Joffré y el lingüista Luis Andrade Ciudad, ambos de la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUCP). El proyecto busca comparar las técnicas y la nomenclatura de la alfarería y la textilería del sur de Cajamarca, una región andina marcada por un complejo sustrato de lenguas indígenas, entre ellas, el quechua y el culle.

Andean Air Mail & Peruvian Times
is back and online after a 10-year hiatus, and is being re-launched as a Web-based multimedia magazine, covering news and features on Peru. The new publication, with Eleanor Griffis as the publisher, builds on a nearly 100-year tradition of excellence in English-language journalism carried on by three generations of the Griffis family, which published the West Coast Leader and the old Andean Air Mail & Peruvian Times newspapers, and later the Lima Times magazine and the Andean Report newsletter.

Arkeos
The aim of the journal is to create a place to debate archaeological topics, analysis and mainly the publication of the works done by undergraduate and graduate students of Archaeology of the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.
