International Symposium: Los Caminos Reales de América

The Camino Real de Tierra Adentro Trail Association

El Paso History Museum, El Paso, TX. USA, 27-29 September, 2013

CARTA (The Camino Real de Tierra Adentro Trail Association) invites interested scholars, specialists and academics to participate in an international symposium: Los Caminos Reales de América which will be held in the El Paso History Museum, El Paso, TX from 27-29 September, 2013.

Since Roman times, the concept of the Camino Real ( Royal Road ), originally a military road maintained by the Crown, existed in the Iberian Peninsular as an important instrument of commerce and control. As they colonized the Americas , the Spaniards applied the concept of military road to maintain control, administration and integration. In the beginning, they made use of the indigenous communication system but the introduction of new technology led them to develop new routes together with new communities.

The histories of the Caminos Reales are the histories of those that travelled them as well as the impacts on their hinterlands. Due to their specific antecedents and development, each Camino Real has a distinct history which is a reflection of the mosaic that is America . The overall goal of this symposium is the study and analysis of specific cases which can be integrated in such a way as to provide the overall patterns that govern the history of the American continent.

Titles and abstracts for individual papers will be accepted from 1 December, 2012 to 15 February, 2013. Each submission should include each authors’ name and affiliation, email, mailing address, and a one-page résumé. After reviewing all the submissions the Organizing Committee will send letters of acceptance to the electronic addresses provided on 28 February, 2013.

At the moment, CARTA does not have the funds to support individual participants, so everyone should expect to pay their own way. However, CARTA will use the previously mentioned letters of acceptance and résumés to apply for the appropriate support and funding.

To facilitate public acceptance, the talks should be extemporaneous and NOT read. The languages of the symposium are English and Spanish.

The texts of the talks will be published in both English and Spanish in The Chronicles of the Trail, CARTA’s quarterly journal.

For further information, please consult Dr. Troy Ainsworth (cartadirector@yahoo.com) or Dr. R. B. Brown (caminosreales@att.net).
