About ICA

The International Congress of Americanists has the longest interdisciplinary tradition of studies on this subject. It has been convened uninterruptedly since 1875 (when the first ICA was held in Nancy, France), with venues alternating between  the Americas and Europe. Originally organized every two years, since 1976 the ICA is being held every three years. In the last two decades, congresses were held in the Netherlands (Amsterdam 1988), United States (New Orleans 1991), Sweden (Stockholm-Uppsala 1994), Ecuador (Quito 1997), Poland (Warsaw 2000), Chile (Santiago 2004), Spain (Seville 2006) and Mexico (Mexico City 2009).
