CJA Call for Papers

We invite you to submit your manuscript to the Canadian Journal of Archaeology (CJA). Published by the Canadian Archaeological Association, the CJA is Canada’s national archaeology journal, the only journal that covers Canadian archaeology from coast to coast to coast.  But we don’t just publish Canadian archaeology. The CJA also publishes research from cross-border regions (Arctic, Eastern Woodlands, Plains, Pacific Northwest), and we encourage submissions from archaeologists based in Canada who are working in other parts of the world.

The Bulletin: Call for Submissions

The new vision for the Bulletin is a venue for discussing a wide range of topics relevant to the interests of CAA members and wider audiences online, and will appear in a more traditional downloadable format twice per year. In particular, the Bulletin seeks to highlight and address the diverse backgrounds and experiences of members.

President’s Statement

This is my first message to all of you as CAA President and I want to begin by thanking Greg Hare, Ruth Gotthardt, Jeff Hunston, and the army of volunteers who organized a highly successful conference in Whitehorse in May 2016, packed with great papers, social events, and “Land of the Midnight Sun” hospitality. We gained a new Vice-President at this meeting. Congratulations to Jennifer Campbell who was elected to replace outgoing VP Adrian Burke. I would like to thank Adrian for his dedicated service as Vice-President.
