Dear Collegues:

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the Symposium  
"Meanings of plant domestication in the Americas. Evidences,  
processes, and implications" that we are planning for the 53rd  
International Congress of Americanists to be held in Mexico DF in  
2009 (http://www.53ica.com/Welcome.html)

One of the major questions concerning the domestication of plants  in  
the Americas, has been that of determining the  antiquity of the  
respective taxa. Despite of its importance for scientific and ethical  
issues, this topic lack of any interest if it is not linked to  
domestication processes and socio-economic implications. In this  
symposium we are interested in addressing more specifically the  
domestication processes and the socio-economic implications. We are  
therefore calling for case studies or review papers that address  
plant domestication processes and discuss its “meaning” through  
multiple approaches such as: processing and consumption residues  
(macro and microremains, dental calculus, coproliths, stomach and  
intestinal content); diet (stable isotopes, bone and tooth  
pathologies); agricultural fields and irrigation systems;  
iconography; storage structures; tools for agriculture, harvest and  
plant processing. We do not want to put emphasis on methodologies,  
but on their results to be able to address the question of human  
management of species and plant communities: did it lead to plant  
domestication or tending? Were these processes local, or did the  
plants come from other areas? Did these plants change the socio- 
economic structures of the groups, and to what extent? How did these  
plants integrate into the everyday life of American groups? Finally  
what were the ecological, political, economic as well as symbolic  
contexts for the incorporation – or rejection of domesticates?
Through this symposium we hope to be able to discuss the local vs  
regional similarities and dissimilarities as part of the complex and  
heterogeneous phenomenon of plant domestication in the Americas.

If you are interested in participate, please send to the following  
adresses your name & adress, the title & abstract (200 words max) of  
your communication, as well as 5 keywords by March 26th:

Estimad@s colegas:

Nos dirigimos a Uds. a fin de invitarlos a participar en el Simposio  
"Matices de la domesticación vegetal en las Américas. Procesos,  
indicadores e  implicancias"  que organizamos dentro del marco del  
53° Congreso Internacional de Americanistas, a realizarse en México  
en el año 2009 (http://www.53ica.com/Bienvenidos.html)

Una de las preguntas centrales, sino la única, respecto a la  
domesticación de las plantas en las Américas, ha sido la de sus  
respectivas antigüedades. Este interrogante no dejará de efectuarse  
por sus implicancias éticas y científicas. Sin embargo, la  
competencia por el dato más antiguo no tiene sentido si no somos  
capaces de abordar los procesos de domesticación mismos y entender  
sus implicancias socio-económicas.
Queremos por lo tanto convocar a la presentación de casos de estudio  
y trabajos de síntesis que aborden los procesos de la domesticación  
vegetal y discutan sus “matices” mediante enfoques diversos tales  
como: los residuos de procesamiento y consumo (macro y microrrestos  
vegetales, cálculo dental, coprolitos, contenidos estomacales);  
indicadores de dieta (isótopos estables, patologías óseas y  
dentales); las áreas de cultivo y sistemas de riego; la iconografía;  
las estructuras de depósito; el instrumental para el trabajo de la  
tierra, la recolección y el procesamiento vegetal. El objetivo final  
del simposio no es enfatizar en los detalles técnicos de estas  
metodologías sino en cómo los resultados de su aplicación nos  
permiten abordar aspectos que tienen que ver con el impacto del  
manejo antrópico sobre las especies y/o comunidades vegetales; si es  
que este manejo se tradujo en casos de cuidado o domesticación; si se  
trata de procesos locales o bien, de la incorporación de recursos  
domésticos desde otras áreas; si estas incorporaciones propiciaron o  
no cambios sustanciales en la organización socio-económica precedente  
de los grupos; los contextos de inserción de los vegetales domésticos  
en la cotidianeidad de los grupos americanos; las circunstancias  
ambientales, políticas, económicas y/o simbólicas de la incorporación  
o rechazo/extirpación de las plantas domésticas.
A partir de esto, esperamos discutir las particularidades/similitudes  
locales/regionales al interior de este fenómeno heterogéneo y  
complejo de la domesticación de plantas en las Américas.

Para ello, solicitamos a los interesados que nos envíen sus nombres y  
dirección, el título así como un resumen de 200 palabras como máximo  
de su ponencia, y 5 palabras clave hasta el 26 de Marzo de 2008, a  
las siguientes direcciones de correo electrónico:
