      Subject: ICA 2000: CALL FOR PAPERS

      CALL FOR SYMPOSIUM PAPERS.
      SYMPOSIUM: NATIVE AMERICAN ECOLOGIES: PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE.
      ORGANIZERS: ANDREW SLUYTER & ALFRED H. SIEMENS.
      CONFERENCE: THE 50TH INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF AMERICANISTS/CONGRESO
      INTERNACIONAL DE AMERICANISTAS
      VENUE: WARSAW, 10-14 JULY 2000.
      Scholarship on past, present, and future Native American ecologies and their
      spatial expressions as landscapes is by now well advanced and has achieved
      many significant insights. Yet that scholarship has never been well
      integrated, and therefore this symposium will be timely and innovative. It
      will, for example, bring together the best current scholarship on how
      ancient and present-day Native American agricultural systems function, their
      relationships to environments, and how they might be sustained or
      reimplemented as an alternative to conventional development models. Some
      production systems were part of a prehistoric context and cannot be
      reactivated; others have proved sustainable into our time; and others, with
      adaptations, might provide alternatives to industrialized agricultural. The
      symposium will, moreover, achieve a theoretical integration of those
      different strands of research on Native American ecologies, agricultural as
      well as others, into a meaningful whole that cuts across study of the past,
      the present, and the future to engage contemporary theorization of society,
      nature, space, and their intersection in development issues.
      As background information, this will be one of 70 symposia that has been
      accepted for the Warsaw ICA. The ICA organizing committee has now circulated
      the preliminary program and information on how to submit papers to symposia
      organizers. If you are not already on the mailing list, further
      information-such as links to the ICA circulars in Spanish, English, and
      Portuguese-is available at
      <http://www.geog.psu.edu/~sluyter/research/ica.html
      <http://www.geog.psu.edu/~sluyter/research/ica.html> > and will be
      periodically updated. If you intend to participate, we will need an abstract
      of 350 to 700 words in English, Spanish, or Portuguese by 1 October 1999.
