Call For Papers

What drove ancient societies to change the landscape and create monumental ritual, ceremonial, and gathering places? We will explore the traditions of various Indigenous people in pursuit of a clearer understanding of the genesis of community-driven built environment.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The GREAT STONES SYMPOSIUM welcomes contributions from researchers, scholars working across diverse disciplines, sites and practices, as well as tribal spokespersons and historians. Typical presentation time for accepted papers is 25 minutes. At least one author must attend to present and for inclusion in the conference publication. Our program will include selected individual papers as well as an anticipated satellite program of events. Presentations and subsequent publication will be in English.
