Conference Announcement
Recent Advances in the Archaeology of East and Southeast Asia

March 15-16 2013
Assembly Room at the Madison Concourse Hotel (1 W. Dayton Street)
Madison, Wisconsin

This conference will highlight the recent archaeological discoveries in Southeast and East Asia that have begun to transform our understanding of prehistoric and proto-historic societies and cultural trajectories in these closely linked regions. It will bring together a diverse group of researchers from the US and other regions that work on a wide range of topics related to regional culture histories, anthropological theories, and modern-day issues of national identity and cultural heritage management. Paper topics will include discussions of subsistence practices, specialized craft production, emergent complexity and urban forms, inter-regional interaction and exchange, and the nature of ancient violence.
