The 33rd Annual Chacmool Conference will have as its theme, "Art for Archaeology's Sake: Material Culture and Style Across the Disciplines." This discussion is meant to bridge the gap between archaeology, art history, and material culture studies, considering both the shared and divergent ways in which objects and visual imagery are used to infer behavior and ideology. Style has long been a cornerstone of archaeological analysis, and has been used to distinguish temporal patterns and cultural affiliation, as well as deep structuring principles and intentional communication of symbolic information. Chacmool will host a conversation across the disciplines to break down barriers and share strategies of interpretation. The proceedings of the conference will subsequently be published.
