Call for Papers -- Pecos Conference 1997 -- 14-17 August at Chaco Canyon

The Pecos Conference is returning to Chaco Canyon after a  50-year hiatus. 
To celebrate, the committee is planning a somewhat different program than in 
recent years - one that  reflects back on early conferences in spirit and in 
atmosphere while providing a setting for discussion of significant  topics 
in southwestern archaeology.  Consequently, we're circulating this early 
call for papers. Time for traditional, archaeology-related subject areas 
 will be reduced. These papers should be concise (8-10 min. each) and to the 
point - a review of the work and possible  methodological, theoretical, 
etc., implications. Detailed  descriptions of artifact inventories and 
features, unless  unique, are highly discouraged.  An ethnology session will 
be added, and, we'd like slightly longer talks about hot topics in SW 

A short session on past Chaco personnel (researchers and other workers) will 
also be held. Contributors to this session (slides, photos, ideas, etc) 
 should contact:

John Schelberg
630 Solar Rd NW, Albuquerque, NM, 87107
(wk) 505-342-3359; (hm) 505-344-9247).

Early requests for time on the program or for other program arrangements 
should be sent to:

Tom Windes (Pecos 97)
Chaco Collections
c/o Anthropology Department, University of New Mexico
Albuquerque, NM 87131

Plan now if you'd like to present a talk - requests must be received by May. 
Late requests will not be accepted and if the program fills up, some papers 
may be rejected.  Formal notice of the meeting, solicitation of papers, and 
registration information will be mailed in March.  For information about all 
other conference arrangements and to be placed on the mailing list, contact:
