This conference will highlight the recent archaeological discoveries in Southeast and East Asia that have begun to transform our understanding of prehistoric and proto-historic societies and cultural trajectories in these closely linked regions. It will bring together a diverse group of researchers from the US and other regions that work on a wide range of topics related to regional culture histories, anthropological theories, and modern-day issues of national identity and cultural heritage management. Paper topics will include discussions of subsistence practices, specialized craft production, emergent complexity and urban forms, inter-regional interaction and exchange, and the nature of ancient violence.
