It is a sure thing! We are heading south of the fake wall to hold our conference in Oaxaca, Mexico on October 10-14, 2018. Excursions are planned for Wednesday, October 10; so those interested in those visits should make earlier travel arrangements. We will coordinate with the Central Cultural San Pablo — they have secured a magnificent hotel site for our meeting. Lodging is luxurious and inexpensive, $79.00 per night and the mountaintop hotel is surrounded by hundreds of acres of gardens. Food is superb but also inexpensive. There will be scheduled van service into Oaxaca for those wishing to visit the city. If you book now you can secure flights on scheduled airlines for as low as $330 dollars from Los Angeles and Chicago. Travel costs from the east coast cities are higher and increase monthly starting in January. To facilitate the process we will have rolling admissions for abstract submission, so that you can submit your proposal as early as December 1 and know the outcome by January 1. This will give participants a chance to plan and secure reason airfares.
Likewise, we are also happy to note that the 2019 (October 23 – 27) meeting will be in State College, PA!
CALL FOR PAPERS:
We invite proposals for panel sessions and papers on any topic within ethnohistory. Complete panel proposals with a chair and a commentator are preferred, but individual paper proposals will also be considered. The rolling deadline for paper and panel submissions begins on January 15 and ends on May 15, 2018. Applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals no later than June 15, 2018. It is not necessary to register for the conference in order to have a paper or panel accepted. Once papers and panels are accepted, however, participants must register by August 1, 2018.
