Once or twice each year, Americae sends out open calls for papers around a specific theme. These « virtual symposia » may focus on a broad, transversal theme that would be of interest to archaeologists and ethnohistorians working throughout the Americas, or they may instead focus on a specific region and/or time period.
Anyone may submit manuscripts as long as they are relevant to the proposed theme. After all of the manuscripts have been reviewed, a selection will be chosen for publication in Americae. These papers will be published as a group and indexed by the common theme.
