What are the effects of climate change on archaeological sites? What does archaeology tell us about past climate change? How can we use this information to influence the future?

The IUP Archaeology, Climate Change, and the Anthropocene Symposium brings together top scholars to address these questions through presentations and discussion. You are invited to join the conversation!

Present a research poster and attend a pre-symposium workshop for no extra charge.

Reduced price for students.

Special pricing at the Indiana Hilton Garden Inn, adjacent to the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex, is available on the registration page.
