We are delighted to announce that the 64th Annual Meeting of the Institute of Andean Studies will be returning to an in-person format in 2024! The 64th Annual Meeting will be held in Berkeley, California from January 12th to January 13th, 2024. Details regarding advance registration for the meetings will be coming soon!
For our first in-person meeting since 2020, we will return to our previous two day (Friday-Saturday) format. There will be no more than nineteen 20-minute papers, a 40-minute talk by this year's Travel Grantee, a 40-minute Saturday evening public lecture, and an unspecified number of posters. Ten minutes are scheduled for discussion after each paper. A computer and data projector are provided. All abstracts will be considered for regular 20-minute talks. If you wish to also be considered for the longer public lecture, please indicate how the presentation could be expanded or provide an alternate abstract for a longer talk of broad interest and visual appeal. Accepted abstracts will be posted publicly on the Institute’s website.
Posters are about 3x4 feet (92x122 cm), and are displayed continuously during both days of the meeting. One 45-minute period each day is scheduled for discussion with poster authors. We are looking into the possibility of a virtual poster session as well. If you are interested in presenting but cannot attend physically, please indicate your preference in the form.
Topics are open to Andean anthropology, archaeology, history, art history, sociology, ethnomusicology, and other related subjects.
Abstract submissions for paper and poster presentations can be done online using this webform and must be submitted by Friday, October 27th, 2023. In order to successfully submit, authors must also affirm the Code of Conduct agreement for themselves and on behalf of any co-authors or contributors they are including in their submission.
