This resource is an application for the Conference Grant from the Wenner-Gren Foundation.

The World Archaeological Congress (WAC) is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization whose members seek to promote interest in the past in all countries, to encourage the development of regionally-based histories and to foster international academic interaction. Its aims are based on the need to recognize the historical and social roles as well as the political context of archaeology, and the need to make archaeological studies relevant to the wider community. WAC conferences are international forums for discussion for anyone who is concerned with the study of the past. The Eighth World Archaeological Congress (WAC-8) will be held in Kyoto, Japan at Doshisha University. The aims of WAC-8 are to promote: discussion of new archaeological research as well as archaeological policy, theory, and practice; professional training for emerging scholars, especially those from disadvantaged nations, groups and communities; the empowerment and support of Indigenous groups and First Nations peoples; and the conservation of archaeological sites. With the help of support from Wenner-Gren, WAC-8 will include participants from around the world, helping to foster an international community of research scholars in anthropology.
