SAA Press Current Perspectives Series

Jennifer Birch
(University of Georgia), General Editor

The University Press of Colorado copublishes the Current Perspectives series in collaboration with the Society for American Archaeology Press.

This series seeks nonfiction books that provide up-to-date summaries or overviews of the current state of archaeological knowledge or method in a region, a topic of broad continental or hemispheric interest (e.g. Peopling of the Americas), or a topic of theoretical or methodological interest (e.g., the use of modeling in archaeology). Books in the series should be of interest to archaeologists not expert in the topic area desiring a comprehensive but brief overview, as well as students and instructors of undergraduate or graduate courses.

We invite edited volumes, monographs, and multi-authored works in the field or subfield of archaeology. All proposals for this series should follow the press submission guidelines, and submissions will be evaluated by the press acquisitions staff, the series editors and editorial board, as well as outside experts.
