Paths Across the Pacific VIII
Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at 6:00 PM - Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 4:00 PM (PDT)
Paths Across the Pacific VIII conference in 2013 will continue a unique exchange of ideas from many academic sciences in the magnificent, friendly setting of Sitka, a small town on Baranof Island in Southeast Alaska. Ideas from Oceanography, Native American knowledge, Archaeology, Molecular Anthropology, Geography, Linguistics, and Marine Biology, will merge and mix through our special interest in human migrations on, across and around our planet’s oceans. Water, time, genes, history and ideas link us all, differently, creatively and periodically. In what directions might our explorations take us next?
Paths Across the Pacific
Paths Across the Pacific Conferences began in Sitka in 2002. They have been leading the way in reporting and evaluating scientific evidence of human migrations across the world’s oceans.
Human mobility along coasts, between islands and across ocean expanses is being documented by increasingly sophisticated scientific data. By bringing together an unusual and creative mix of scholars with cutting-edge concepts, Paths Across the Pacific has given these ideas momentum.
