The Pre-Columbian Society of Washington, D.C. is currently accepting registrations for its 19th annual symposium, The World Around Them: How Pre-Columbian Societies Created Their Cultural Landscapes. The symposium will take place in Washington, D.C., on September 15, 2012.

In a year when much attention is being given to ancient American notions of time, noted scholars will explore other equally important aspects of the pre-Columbian world--how Mesoamerican and Andean societies manipulated their environments to communicate and reinforce ideas about social organization, political power, and cosmic order. Addressing this topic will be Wendy Ashmore, University of California at Riverside (moderator); David Carrasco, Harvard Divinity School; Clark Erickson, University of Pennsylvania; Jean-Pierre Protzen, University of California at Berkeley; Heather Richards-Rissetto, Bruno Kessler Foundation, Trento, Italy, and Juliet Wiersema, University of Texas, San Antonio.

On-line registration is possible and encouraged. For details and registration information, please go to the Pre-Columbian Society's website:
