This is a past event.
At this conference, we will position archaeology as a sustainability science, a systematic examination of the sustainability of interactions among different social and natural systems. The theme of sustainability underscores the relevancy of the discipline and contributes to contemporary discussions about the future in creating a just and sustainable world. MHAC15 participants will bring their own experiences and perspectives to explore the issue of sustainability and archaeology. We invite presentations by archaeologists and their allies that share intellectual concerns for the past five centuries and the century to come.
