NCAAE Founder’s Award named for Sandweiss
At the 38th Annual Northeast Conference on Andean Archaeology and Ethnohistory (NCAAE) at Brown University, the first Dan Sandweiss NCAAE Founder’s Award was presented to Richard Daggett of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, in recognition of long-term and active support of the Northeast Conference on Andean Archaeology and Ethnohistory and “Andean Past,” founded by Dan Sandweiss at Cornell University in 1982.
Sandweiss also edited or co-edited the proceedings from the first three NCAAEs and then, in 1987, established the open submission, peer-reviewed interannual journal “Andean Past,” published until 2013 by the Cornell University Latin American Studies Program. Since then, it has been an open access journal on UMaine DigitalCommons through the University of Maine. The lead editor is now Monica Barnes.
The annual conference is hosted by an institution in the Northeast and eastern Canada.
