About the Symposium

We would like to invite scholars, PhD students, and people interested in the past of the New World to an international symposium, organized by the Branch of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Wrocław (Archaeological Commission) and the Institute of Archaeology of the University of Wrocław, in strict cooperation with Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Wrocław. Fourth International Symposium – The Latest Results of American Studies is the next edition of the scientific Americanist Symposium, held cyclically within the historic capital of Lower Silesia in Poland since 2013 (2013, 2016, 2019, 2022).

The main issue of the Symposium will concern the results of the latest research in the fields of archaeological sciences, art history, cultural and physical anthropology, landscape studies, as well as history of the Americas, and their significance for understanding the evolution of pre-Columbian or colonial societies of that macro-region. At the same time, not only the results of the conducted research will be discussed, but also a discussion on the research methods and the manners of commercialization of scientific results on the international arena will be carried out. The research priorities of world Americanist studies for the next few years will also be defined and new research concepts emerging in the scientific discourse will be discussed.

One of the main issues discussed during the Symposium will be environmental and climate changes, and their impact on the development of prehistoric communities and contemporary inhabitants of both Americas, as well as the issue of anthropopressure. In this context, the issue of intensifying interdisciplinary research will be raised. This mainly concerns the use of the latest achievements in the field of physio-chemical, medical, biological, and botanical sciences. Based on their own research results, the speakers will also present experiences in the field of non-invasive research and the possibility of using the newest technological achievements in the field of research in hard-to-reach areas.

At the same time, we plan to organize a discussion regarding broadly understood Pre-Columbian heritage, its social context and methodological aspects. Therefore, we cordially invite you to submit papers related to the issue of public archaeology, heritage conservation, post-colonialism and indigenous archaeology within the both Americas.

The meeting will enable the exchange of experiences between various research institutions and  will offer an excellent opportunity for a discussion on diverse aspects of American studies. Undoubtedly the meeting also contributes to the establishment of contacts between institutions and integration among researchers from different countries.

Fourth International Symposium The Latest Results of American Studies will be held from 7th to 9th of September 2022 in Wrocław. The conference venue will be the Institute of History of the University of Wrocław, which is one of the oldest and largest academic centres in Poland.
