AAAS Pacific Division to convene joint session with world mummy scholars in San Diego
Date:6/3/2011

The AAAS Pacific Division will convene in San Diego from 12-16 June for an annual meeting that will range broadly across the sciences and arts--including, this year, a focus on mummies.

The division's 92nd annual meeting will feature symposia that explore tsunamis and storm surges; the changing dynamics of Antarctic ice; a syndrome associated with autism and mental retardation; and the intersection of science with music, literature, and poetry.

This year's meeting is being held in conjunction with the 7th World Congress on Mummy Studies, and that will give the meeting a special focus. Sixteen sessions and workshops will offer a remarkable look at the current science of mummies, from DNA analysis to methods that are helping researchers develop facial images from mummified remains.

The meeting will take place at the University of San Diego's Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice. Sessions begin every day at 8:00 a.m. Reporters interested in attending can register through Friday June 3 at 541-552-6869 or at the meeting.

"The program includes a robust range of topics," said AAAS Pacific Division President Alissa Arp, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Southern Oregon University. "We will continue our discussions of inquiry-based learning beyond the classroom, and I am particularly intrigued with our ongoing discussions of the convergence of science and the arts, including music and poetry this year. And we're very excited to welcome the World Congress on Mummy Studies."

"Mention the word mummy in almost any group, and you are sure to receive a smile from someone, if not an outright chuckle," said Alana Cordy-Collins, a University of San Diego anthropologist and program coordinator for the Congress on Mummy Studies. "What mo
