Department of Archaeology

 

This group is open to anyone interested in archaeological and anthropological research projects throughout the Americas.  Presentations are given by research students, postdocs, visiting scholars and lecturers from the UK and overseas institutions

The Americas Archaeology Group is funded by the Centre for Latin American Studies. Their support is gratefully acknowledged.

The Multidimensional Dialogues (MD)Research Network is an exciting new research series that will run during 2022-23, sponsored by the Cambridge Research in Arts Social Sciences and History (CRASSH) and the Americas Archaeology Group at the University of Cambridge’s Department of Archaeology. Our network is working towards strengthening world-class scholarship on the study of the Americas. Please see our CRASSH research network landing page Multi-Dimensional Dialogues: Entangling the Americas’ Pasts, Presents and Futures - CRASSH (cam.ac.uk) for more information.  

During Michaelmas term, our Network will focus on the Topic: Ecologies from and of the Americas. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for enabling a collaborative network among scholars and a space to learn from other modes of living and interacting beyond western perspectives, meaning that the relationships between humans and non-humans can be valuable lessons for our uncertain future.    

The organisers are Jimena Lobo Guerrero Arenas and the MD/AAG Team (Camila Alday, Joshua Fitzgerald, Jasmine Vieri, and Oliver Antczak).
