The Archaeological Institute
of America (AIA) creates partnership with EAA
In September 2011, representatives
from the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) attended the 17th Annual
Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) in Oslo. Although
individual members from both the AIA and EAA have attended and presented
at each other's' annual meetings over the years, this was the first time
that the AIA was formally represented at an EAA Annual Meeting. AIA representatives
met with several members of the EAA Executive Committee and discussed the
possibility of greater cooperation and joint programming between the two
organizations. The AIA would like to see this as the beginning of a long
and mutually beneficial partnership that will allow for a greater and more
efficient exchange of ideas and scholarship between the two groups.
To mark the formal start
of this relationship, the AIA and EAA are embarking on several joint initiatives.
These include publicizing each other's events to their respective memberships,
encouraging members to submit papers and participate in each other's conferences,
and sending materials for publication and making announcements in each
other's newsletters. For immediate consideration by EAA members, the AIA
is happy to announce that EAA members who wish to attend the AIA Annual
Meeting in Philadelphia from 5-8 January 2012 will be able to do so at
the discounted rate generally reserved for AIA members.
Representatives of the AIA
look forward to attending the EAA meeting in 2012 and welcome EAA members
to all Institute events and programs.
