The Joint Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) and the Society for Classical Studies(SCS) (formerly known as the American Philological Association) is hitting the road and heading to the French Quarter. The AIA Academic Program alone is offering an additional 19 sessions this year. A Sunday mid-day session block has been added to accommodate the expanded programs. Sessions exploring artifacts, art, social systems, fashion, cooking vessels, trade networks, shipwrecks, architecture, inscriptions, and archaeological research methods of the classical and New World will be offered.
Attendees are key decision-makers in the selection of a wide variety of textbooks, software, products, and services for their affiliated universities, organizations, and institutions. The conference brings together professional and vocational archaeologists, classicists, art historians, epigraphers, and anthropologists from around the world to share the latest developments from the field.
