The 2013 Albuquerque Conference
April 4-7, 2013
DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico
The conference will be held on the campus of the University of New Mexico, home to a vibrant scholarly community in Iberian history. Beautiful Albuquerque is home to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and the Turquoise Museum. It is also an easy drive from Albuquerque to stunning Santa Fe, one of the oldest surviving cities founded in the United States by the Spanish. York University of Toronto’s Adrian Shubert, who earned his MA in History at the University of New Mexico in 1976, has enthusiastically agreed to return to Albuquerque and serve as the meeting’s keynote speaker.
The DoubleTree Hotel is an attractive and recently renovated property right in the heart of downtown, walking distance from the Civic Plaza, Convention Center, and excellent restaurants and taverns on Historic Route 66/Central Avenue. The hotel is a short bus ride to the University of New Mexico, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, the Rio Grande Zoo, the Albuquerque Aquarium and Botanical Gardens, the Nob Hill Shopping neighborhood, and historic Old Town.
Use this link for special conference rates: $99.00 before taxes, single or double occupancy, if you make your reservations by March 4, 2013 (rates are not guaranteed after that date). Graduate students may want to note that triple occupancy rooms are available for $119.00 per night, and that the rate for quad rooms is only $139.00. As the beauty of Albuquerque can easily seduce one into staying longer than required, the DoubleTree has extended the rate offer to the day before and after (April 3-8).
