The Huronia chapter of the Ontario Archaeological Society is pleased to host the annual symposium from Oct. 16 to 18, 2015 in Midland, Ontario. The theme of the upcoming conference is “Huronia - Before and After Champlain.”
We welcome papers on all aspects of the Ontario’s archaeological past. On the 400th anniversary of Champlain’s arrival in Huronia, we particularly want to highlight the Wendat past in the region, and interactions with the first French explorers and missionaries.
At this time we are calling for proposals for sessions, individual presentations, and posters. Sessions may be half or full day sessions (about nine papers or sixteen papers respectively). Presentations are twenty minutes in length.
Session proposals: please send proposal descriptions of about 300 words to Alicia Hawkins (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 1, 2015. A list of potential presenters should accompany the session proposal.
Abstracts for individual presentations and posters should be about 300 words and these should also be emailed to Alicia Hawkins (email@example.com). The deadline for abstracts is June 30, 2015.
We encourage the practice of ethical archaeology in the discovery of the history of Huronia (northern Simcoe County) through archaeological research and discussion of the historic record and oral tradition. Please feel free to comment and or join and post on the blog. Blog contents do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Ontario Archaeological Society or the Huronia chapter.
