Symposium on Paleoparasitology in 2016

I will join in the symposium for "Host – Parasite Relationships and Diseases: Lessons from the Past", upcoming 9th World Congress of Mummy Studies, Lima/Peru on August 10 - 13, 2016. Below is the Symposium Abstract.

Many of the parasitic diseases that plagued ancient human populations continue to burden contemporary societies across the globe, and are far from being eradicated. Paleoparasitology is aimed at improving our understanding of the history of parasites and parasite population diversity over time, as well as the natural and anthropogenic conditions that contribute to parasite emergence and maintenance in human groups. Having contributed to shape the dynamics of modern human populations, the study of the extinct populations coupled with the one of extant populations will allow reconstructing the temporal distribution patterns of both the parasites and their hosts. Indirectly, host-parasite relationships glean from the archaeological record also provide information on climate conditions, paleodiet and cultural/mortuary practices.
Adauto Araújo participated in these studies. At the time of his death, he began participating in projects that would broaden the field. This symposium summarizes the field and Adauto’s participation, including papers addressing new perspectives.
