February 26th, 2014

The formation of a new regional professional organization for environmental archaeologists and other scholars interested in the history of human-environmental interactions, the Northeast Environmental Archaeology Network (NEEAN). A new regional professional organization of environmental archaeologists and other scholars interested in the history of human-environmental interactions worldwide. While it is based in the Northeastern US, the organization is open to any interested individual regardless of location of residence or region of research interest. The goals of the organization include networking between professionals and nascent professionals (graduate and undergraduate students) and opportunities for sharing knowledge and laboratory protocols, equipment, and facilities between organizations throughout the region.

The first meeting of the organization is at Boston University on Saturday, April 5, 2014. Meetings will provide an opportunity for members to bring materials for hands-on identification, to share methodological developments, and to discuss interdisciplinary approaches to research questions with a diverse array of scholars.
