You are invited to participate in the third annual Rocky Mountain Pre-Columbian Association (RMPA) Research Colloquium on Saturday, September 30th, 2017. The colloquium will be held at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science from 9am to 5pm with a reception to follow.

The Colloquium:

The day is organized around a series of consecutive sessions in which participants present informal, illustrated discussions of 10-15 minutes. The call for papers at this colloquium is open to research projects at any stage of completion, from preliminary research questions to completed projects. The organizing committee is accepting proposals for individual presentations that will be grouped together into separate panels, and also encourages the submission of session topics and complete panels. By leaving this year’s colloquium open to any research subject, the organizers hope that the colloquium will provide a forum for sharing and discussing the latest research by our colleagues across the region.


The call for papers for this colloquium is open to institutional and independent researchers as well as graduate students specializing in the study of the pre-Columbian Americas. Abstracts of approximately 200-300 words should be emailed by September 4th, 2017 to Michele.Koons@dmns.org.


Organizing Committee:

Dr. Michele Koons (Denver Museum of Nature & Science)

Dr. Catherine DiCesare (Colorado State University)

Dr. Jill Mollenhauer (Metropolitan State University of Denver)
