Workshop: 2018 Annual North American Meeting of Paleopathology Association

Parasitology in Paleopathology – New Perspectives Using Large Data Bases

Organizers: Dong Hoon Shin, Morgana Camacho, Johnica Morrow, Karl Reinhard

We are proposing this workshop for the 2018 Paleopathology Conference. The goal of this workshop is the demonstration of insights that can be gained from analysis of large data sets.  These data sets, ranging from 100 to 1,000 samples, can provide epidemiological insights into transmission and pathology.  Large data sets also provide insights into zoonotic transmission.  Most importantly, focused studies can connect parasitological infections with bone pathology.  We propose a combination of posters and presentations.  The core presentations are listed below.  The organizers will solicit additional papers in the coming months.

1) Dong Hoon Shin - - Dialogue between Paleoparasitology and History: the Scientific Data interpreted by the Studies on Historical Documents
2) Sergey Slepchenko - Parasitology and Pathoecology in Russia: Investigations and Perspectives
3) Morgana Camacho -  The interplay between diet, lifestyle and parasitism in provoking bone pathology
4) Johnica Morrow - Prehistoric morbidity and pathology defined by human-dog associations
5) Heather B. Trigg, Susan A. Jacobucci, Stephen A. Mrozowski and John M. Steinberg- Archaeological Parasites as Indictors of Environmental Change in Urbanizing
Landscapes: Implications for Health and Social Status
6) Karl Reinhard – Contribution of mummy studies to defining parasite patterns
