The Institute for Field Research has begun enrolling students to its 2012 archaeology field schools. Among the many IFR field schools offered this season are four in the Andes:

  1. Peru/Chincha – Chip Stanish (UCLA), Director
  2. Peru/Vitor – Maria Cecilia Lozada (University of Chicago), Director
  3. Peru/Moqui – Colleen Zori (UCLA) & Ran Boytner (USC), Directors
  4. Ecuador/Cochasqui – Danny Zborover (University of Calgary) & Ran Boytner (USC), Directors

Please let your students know about these field school opportunities. Through partnership with California State University Northridge (CSUN), students will be awarded 8 semester credit units for participation in each of these field schools.

The IFR is at the forefront of academic archaeology field schools. The IFR is an independent academic organization that was created by archaeologists and for archaeologists. Our Board of Directors includes leading international archaeologists from elite universities across the world. All our field schools adhere to superior academic standards, rigorous research agenda and strong commitment for field pedagogy. The IFR continuously, and vigorously, monitors research and teaching at all its field schools. We provide comprehensive insurance coverage that is rarely available through most universities. We ensure safety and participate in the most exciting, cutting edge global field research.

The IFR seeks to train the next generation of academic archaeologists. At the same time, we strongly welcome students who wish to pursue careers outside the discipline. We believe that providing such students with a positive, academically rigorous field experience will help instilling in them a deep appreciation for- and lifelong relationships with archaeology. This will also help build public support for archaeology, the protection of the past and appreciation for global cultural heritage.
