Apply Now! Design Workshop on Urban Adaptation to Environmental Change

Applications are now being accepted from researchers and other professionals in archaeology and allied disciplines who interested in participating in a project focused on urban adaptation to environmental change. CfAS and the Amerind Museum are sponsoring this effort to connect archaeological research with contemporary efforts to foster climate resilient urban development. Workshop participants will seek to address questions being asked by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for their 7th Assessment Report Cycle, which will include a special report on equitable and climate-resilient urban development in the face of global climate change.

Through a fall 2024 (Oct. – Dec., with specific dates TBD based on participant availability) design workshop at the Amerind Museum, one or more collaborative synthetic working group projects and/or high-profile publications will be designed by a diverse group of 12-14 researchers, including representatives of the IPCC working group. Selection of participants will give priority to those who have demonstrated theoretical and/or methodological expertise in urban adaptation and resiliency, or who control and are willing to share pertinent data. Participants are sought from relevant disciplines including, but not limited to: archaeology, environmental science, sustainability science, anthropology, demography, geography, history, economics, and sociology. All associated travel expenses will be covered for selected participants. For more information, see the request for information letter here. And to apply, fill out the application form available here.

Please help CfAS by spreading the word through your networks to interested parties.

NOTE: The application deadline has been extended to Friday, May 17, 2024
