Winnipeg 2018

The 2018 CAA Annual Meeting will be held in Winnipeg from May 2–6, 2018.

The theme for the 2018 CAA annual meeting is "Where the Spirit Resides", an English expression of the Anishinaabe word “Manitoba.” This theme reflects the collaborative spirit of archaeology as well as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. The theme can be taken in many directions, such as, the Indigenous perspective for objects and places having spirits, the broader picture of the past by applying Indigenous ways of knowing to archaeological interpretations (and vice-versa), and the inter-cultural connections between Indigenous and migrant populations. This theme also highlights the diversity that exists within our discipline and celebrates community partnerships and projects.

While the 2018 Conference Committee encourages participants to think about the theme when planning their sessions and papers, we welcome all abstracts related to archaeology in Canada or by Canadian archaeologists abroad, regardless of the theme.

A general call for papers will open January 1, 2018, and the deadline for paper abstract submissions is March 2, 2018 March 16, 2018.

We look forward to seeing you all in Winnipeg!
