Nov. 8-10: Save dates for international symposium on colony

UD's Lu Ann De Cunzo works with artifacts from New Castle, Del., which was once part of the New Sweden colony along the Delaware River.

The 2013 New Sweden 375th Anniversary Conference will take place Nov. 8-10 at the University of Delaware's Clayton Hall in Newark, Del., with a live video feed of concurrent sessions at the University of Lund in Sweden.

The conference, "Encountering ‘Others' in the Atlantic World: Perspectives from the Material World," is an international forum on comparative colonialism. It also will serve as the annual meeting of the Council for Northeast Historical Archaeology and the New Sweden History Conference.

Organizers are seeking proposals for papers and sessions on topics related to:

  • the Swedish colony that operated along the Delaware River from 1638-55, its European background and its legacy into the early 19th century;
  • comparative colonialism; and
  • historical archaeology in the northeastern U.S. and Canada.

For information about submissions and about the conference, contact co-chairs Craig Lukezic of the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs at craig.lukezic@state.de.us, 302-736-7407; or Lu Ann De Cunzo, professor in the University's Department of Anthropology, at decunzo@udel.edu, 302-831-1854. A detailed call for papers will appear soon on participating organizations' websites, with an April 15 deadline for submission of abstracts.

The 2013 New Sweden Conference is being organized by a coalition of organizations including the American Swedish Historical Museum, Council for Northeast Historical Archaeology, Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, Delaware Historical Society, Kalmar Nyckel Foundation, Lund University Department of Archaeology and Ancient History, Lund University Historical Museum, Lund University Library, Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation, National Historical Museum of Sweden, Old Swedes Foundation, Swedish Colonial Society and UD's Department of Anthropology.
